White Awake

An Honest Look at What It Means to Be White

by Daniel Hill

Daniel Hill will nev­er for­get the day he heard these words: Daniel, you may be white, but don’t let that lull you into think­ing you have no cul­ture. White cul­ture is very real. In fact, when white cul­ture comes in con­tact with oth­er cul­tures, it almost always wins. So it would be a real­ly good idea for you to learn about your cul­ture.” Con­fused and unset­tled by this encounter, Hill began a jour­ney of under­stand­ing his own white iden­ti­ty. Today he is an active par­tic­i­pant in address­ing and con­fronting racial and sys­temic injus­tices. And in this com­pelling and time­ly book, he shows you the sev­en stages to expect on your own path to cul­tur­al awak­en­ing. It’s cru­cial to under­stand both per­son­al and social real­i­ties in the areas of race, cul­ture, and iden­ti­ty. This book will give you a new per­spec­tive on being white and also empow­er you to be an agent of rec­on­cil­i­a­tion in our increas­ing­ly diverse and divid­ed world.
