Just some light summer reading, y’all. 😳

I decided to write “book reports” on all these (because of course I did), because reading without analysis doesn’t feel like enough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s not about being a “good white person” and checking these off your list… it’s about internalizing and integrating the lessons within. *That’s* why these are on all the lists right now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(I’m also working on some type of reading guide for my White friends who are interested in doing this work. There’s a specific order that I think works best, will be sharing soon.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’ve read / are reading any of these and want to talk about them, hit me up! I’m not really a book club person but I like a good 1-1 situation.⠀⠀

How To Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi

About Sam

Samantha Pollack writes creative copy (mostly emails) for feminist companies and/or thought leaders who are working to build a fairer, more connected culture. She’s also the founder of The Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur, a 6-week course that helps HSP business owners create healthier, more sustainable systems in their work.

Emails for cult thought leaders.

(Personality included.)

Want to learn how to craft emails that inspire action and engagement WITHOUT the “tried and true” (cough: patriarchal) norms we’ve all been taught?

I’m doing it, and I can show you how to do it, too.

(But sometimes, I also like to write about the books I’m reading, or the creative process, or the entrepreneurial experience, or why I hate Steve Jobs, or how I met my BFF. I’ll send you emails like that, too.)

*Just kidding. It’s only an email list.
