ISAAC is very excited to announce that Layla Saad, author of the renowned book, Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor has accepted our invitation to offer a virtual fire-side chat with us on Saturday afternoon, March 16th (time TBA). Elder Doug King will be our host with Layla Saad for this amazing opportunity. Free copies of her book will be available from ISAAC. Many of our Peoples’ people have found her voice to be especially helpful in inviting them into deeper understanding of these concepts and exploring their impact in their lives. The book is organized as a 28-day guide to help readers, especially white people, to understand and identify the impact of white privilege and white supremacy in their lives and become better ancestors in shaping a better future for those who follow us. More details to come.
