The history of Canada’s racist colonial past is tangled and ugly, and racism remains an urgent problem today–especially for progressive social movements. Sheila Wilmot draws in equal measure upon her extensive experience as a white anti-racist activist, and critical theories of race and whiteness, in an effort to re-think the way white leftists understand and take up anti-racism.
