'This book should be mandatory reading for all young people' - Pragya Agarwal

'I wish this book had been around when I was a kid. . . If every child read it, the world would
be transformed. This book will make the world a much better place for all of us' - Mikaela Loach

'Full of knowledge, cultural reference points and practical guidance, I will absolutely be referring to this in my own anti-racism journey and encourage others to do so too' - Jeffrey Boakye

Me and White Supremacy has sold over 150,000 copies and was shortlisted for the Non-Fiction Book of the Year award at the British Book Awards. Now, with this YA edition, Layla will help younger readers to feel more confident talking about white supremacy and antiracism. Layla gives them the knowledge and practical tools they need to help change the world, now and for the generations that come after them.


Me and White Supremacy became one of the most talked about books of 2020. It isn't just a book that you read, it is a book that you do, and it has the power to make you question the world you live in whilst giving you the tools to do something to change it. In this Young Adult edition, Layla has completely reworked the original to address readers of 11+ and of all races to help them explore and better understand racism. The book is based on the understanding that it is important for all young people to understand these topics, so they can grow into adults who know how to have conversations about race and racism as well as how to work together collectively to create an antiracist world.

Like the original book, this edition guides readers through the different concepts that contribute to white supremacy and explores how they can help dismantle it to create a fairer world. It is written in such a way that it can be worked through together as a group, in class, or individually, and over any period of time.
