The Good Ally (Hardback) Nova Reid (author)
I invite you to be courageous and get comfortable with being uncomfortable, because any discomfort you feel is temporary and pales in comparison to what black and brown people often have to experience on a daily basis. Are you ready? Let’s get started, we have work to do.
With social injustices rising in frequency, and an increase in far-right movements around the world, the rise in hate against “the other” is palpable. There is an urgent need to change so that we no longer repeat patterns of behaviour that have led us to where we are.
As a diversity consultant and anti-racism campaigner Nova Reid receives a lot of cries for help and is now inundated with messages asking ‘what next?’. This is a book for those wanting to become better allies against racism, for those who are hungry to expand their knowledge and understanding of systemic racism. Because for centuries we have been taught to uphold and maintain systems of oppression without question. To go along with that powerful current. Because it’s easier than swimming in the opposite direction.
So this book is for everyone. Everyone who wants to be part of change, but feels helpless and doesn’t know how to move forward. It helps interpret the reams of information so that you to can commit to powerful action. And together, we can change the world.
