Summary
"Allyship, Friendship, Kinship, Relationships. The suffix 'ship' expresses quality, condition or state of being. Allyship is the quality or condition of being an ally. This book is an exploration of that state of being, which the authors in this volume have spent their lives developing. Being an ally is typically thought of as a role that a person from a privileged group plays toward a person in an oppressed group. But as you will find in reading this volume, it is also so much more. This book is not called 'Allies' because most of these authors included here would not self-identify as an 'ally.' That label itself is situation-dependent and personal, and most authors would rather allow their friends and colleagues of color to decide whether they consider them an ally, rather than proclaim the title for themselves. But through the collective stories, paths and challenges that the authors share with us in this volume, a picture of what allyship can and should be begins to emerge in sharp relief"--Provided by publisher
