    1. An excellent compilation of works by anti-racist white role models detailing their stories, missteps, and lessons learned along the way. The introduction by Paul Kivel is appropriately sobering, however, as he says "I urge you, as a reader, to not see us as people to be celebrated or emulated. Nothing is that simple. Instead, learn from our challenges and reluctances so that you might catch yourself following those lead and decide instead to quicken your pace." An important addition to any racia [...]

    2.

In social justice work, and devouring media and news, it's easy to get stuck just processing what is happening, and to be lost in the depression, weight, and guilt of being white- this book is a strong antidote of white people saying "yes, andG [...]

    3. I picked up this book after hearing Dr. Moore Jr. speak at my library recently. As 1st generation Brazilian immigrant, I'm locked out from the highest echelons of the White hierarchy; however, as for all light-skinned Latin Americans, I do benefit from an enormous amount of white privilege due to an ability to "pass" until we reveal ourselves (often to the response, "oh, I thought you were White").So in many ways, the insights in this book really resonated for me, as an "off-white" person, as on [...]

    4. I found this book disappointing. I am an admirer of many of the activist in this book, but these essays seem quickly written and slapped together. Better to just read original works by the various authors.
