White women’s protection is central to American culture, and it is killing all of us. Whether driving their children to their deaths in minivans or summoning the police to visit “death by cop” on Black people or simply passing on the myth of whiteness and the reality of white wealth to their children, nice white ladies are actively participating in a system designed for their comfort and the destruction of others. So writes sociologist Jessie Daniels in her new book NICE WHITE LADIES: The Truth about White Supremacy, Our Role in It, and How We Can Help Dismantle It (Seal Press, 2021). Join us in what is sure to be an engaging conversation with Dr. Barbara Combs, the author of From Selma to Montgomery: The Long March to Freedom, a book about the Selma campaign for voting rights and the forthcoming book, Bodies Out of Place: Theorizing Anti Blackness in US Society.
