Summary

A cultural commentator presents this memoir-in-essays in which she provides a deeply personal, razor-sharp critique of white fragility, respectability politics, and all the places where fear masquerades as progress. Jill Louise Busby spent years speaking at academic institutions, businesses, and detention centres on the topics of Race, Power, and Privilege. In 2016, fed up with what passed as progressive in the Pacific Northwest, Busby uploaded a one-minute video about race, white institutions, and faux liberalism to Instagram. This is a memoir-in-essays about race, progress, and hypocrisy.
