About this item


About the Book

How to Fight Racism by Jemar Tisby is a handbook for fighting racism that provides readers with practical tools and suggestions, along with real-world examples of change, to enable them to become proactive initiators of racial justice.

Book Synopsis

Racism is pervasive in today's world, and many are complicit in the failure to confront its evils. Jemar Tisby, author of the award-winning The Color of Compromise, believes we need to move beyond mere discussions about racism and begin equipping people with the practical tools to fight against it.

How to Fight Racism is a handbook for pursuing racial justice with hands-on suggestions bolstered by real-world examples of change. Tisby offers an array of actionable items to confront racism in our relationships and in everyday life through a simple framework--the A.R.C. Of Racial Justice--that helps readers consistently interrogate their own actions and maintain a consistent posture of anti-racist action. This book is for anyone who believes it is time to stop compromising with racism and courageously confront it.

Tisby roots the ultimate solution to racism in the Christian faith as we embrace the implications of what Jesus taught his followers. Beginning in the church, he provides an opportunity to be part of the solution and suggests that the application of these principles can offer us hope that will transform our nation and the world. Tisby encourages us to reject passivity and become active participants in the struggle for human dignity across racial and ethnic lines. Readers of the book will come away with a clear model for how to think about race in productive ways and a compelling call to dismantle a social hierarchy long stratified by skin color.

Jemar Tisby's timely second bestseller is breaking ground by moving us from awareness to relationships to commitment (his ARC of racial justice.) Jemar offers practical suggestions for moving from ideas to action. His guidance is pertinent to individuals, schools, churches and businesses who want to work for racial justice. Jemar's Christian compassion and encouragement are uplifting and inspirational. This is a book I'll read again and again.

For Such a Time as This

Brooke - 3 years ago
If you're looking for a book to help you meaningfully participate in the fight against racism, then this is the book for you. Tisby walks readers through steps that help them mature as followers of Christ and participants in the fight for racial justice. He grounds it all in God's love for his children and God's commandments that we love God and neighbor. As Tisby has said, "This is the modern day civil rights movement." Prepare yourself by reading this book and join the movement!

“Racial justice is demonstrated not in the times when everyone is talking about race but in those times when it would be easy or expected to overlook race.” From New York Times bestselling author Jemar Tisby, How to Fight Racism is the perfect follow up to his incredible first book, The Color of Compromise. Tisby uses a framework called ARC (awareness, relationships, and commitment) to organize clear explanations and examples of practical action steps to take to combat racism. As many people across the nation became more aware of the problem of racism over the summer of 2020, many (especially white) people began asking, “What should I do?” Tisby gives a thoughtful, easy-to-understand response to that question. He encourages readers to start small, choosing one or two action steps to implement first. This would be a fantastic book to read with a group in order to discuss how these ideas can be applied to readers’ particular contexts, whether they are new to the work of racial justice or have been on the antiracism journey for a long time. I really love Tisby’s work and the way he is able to combine truth-telling with encouragement for readers to persist in the extremely difficult, but vital, work toward racial justice.
