Publisher's Summary

An approachable guide to being an informed, compassionate, and socially conscious person today - from discussions of race, gender, and sexual orientation to disability, class, and beyond - from critically acclaimed historian, educator, and author Blair Imani. 

We live in a time where it has never been more important to be knowledgeable about a host of social issues, and to be confident and appropriate in how to talk about them. What's the best way to ask someone what their pronouns are? How do you talk about racism with someone who doesn't seem to get it? What is intersectionality, and why do you need to understand it? While it can seem intimidating or overwhelming to learn and talk about such issues, it's never been easier thanks to educator and historian Blair Imani, creator of the viral sensation "Smarter in Seconds" series of videos.

Accessible to learners of all levels - from those just getting started on the journey to those deeply versed in social justice - Read This to Get Smarter covers a range of topics including race, gender, class, disability, oppression, relationships, family, and beyond. This essential guide is a radical but warm and nonjudgmental call-to-arms, structured in such a way that you can read it cover-to-cover or start with any topic you want to learn more about.

With Blair Imani as your teacher, you'll "get smarter" in no time, and be equipped to intelligently and empathetically process, discuss, and educate others on the crucial issues we must tackle to achieve a liberated, equitable world.

I AM Smarter

So many things I didn't consider before. Now I am more aware I will have more respectful interactions with people. There were some topics presented I wish to explore further and now know how to do it respectfully. Thank you Blair. I left a lovely IG message for you. It basically says, thank you.
