Daniels addresses white women's complicity in racial discrimination in the US but also in their unique potential to resist and dismantle the white nationalism that threatens us all. Daniels is a white woman seeking to call in fellow white women to think together and act rather than simply call out and criticize.
Despite the serious subject matter, Daniels creates a very welcoming and a 'we’re all in this together' tone by framing the narrative with her personal anti-racism journey, including her racist ancestry ... A welcome addition to the anti-racism canon; read alongside the myriad Black and POC authors, activists, and scholars listed in Daniels’ notes.
Immensely readable ... Daniels, who has clearly done the work of examining herself first, concludes by offering constructive ways White women can undo the damage of their privileged status by challenging and questioning as well as by cultivating alternate forms of family and kinship outside of the White nuclear family ... This significant study, both academic and personal, provides a well-lit path 'to swerve away from white supremacy.
