"Uprooting Racism" Book Signing by Author Paul Kivel

Kehilla Community Synagogue

Completely revised and updated, this 4th edition of Uprooting Racism offers a framework around neoliberalism and interpersonal, institutional, and cultural racism, along with stories of resistance and white solidarity. It providers practical tools and advice on how white people can work as allies for racial justice, directly engaging the reader through questions, exercises, and suggestions for action. Previous editions of Uprooting Racism have sold more than 50,000 copies because it is accessible, personal, supportive and practical – ideal for students, community activists, teachers, youth workers and anyone interested in issues of diversity, multiculturalism and social justice.

Paul Kivel, social justice educator, activist, and writer, has been an innovative leader in violence prevention for more than 45 years. He is an accomplished trainer and speaker on men’s issues, racism and diversity, challenges of youth, teen dating and family violence, raising boys to manhood, and the impact of class and power on daily life. Paul has developed highly effective participatory and interactive methodologies for training youth and adults in a variety of settings. His work gives people the understanding to become involved in social justice work and the tools to become more effective allies in community struggles to end oppression and injustice and to transform organizations and institutions.
