About the Author

Dr. Akilah Cadet is the Founder and CEO of Change Cadet, an organizational development consulting firm that offers services that support embedding belonging into overall organizational identity and strategy. As a Forbes Next 1000 Entrepreneur her work is behind some of the biggest brands you use everyday. Dismantling white supremacy through storytelling is at the core of her work as a leader, speaker, creative director, producer, writer, editor and author. She lives in Oakland, CA, literally has all the degrees, celebrates her disability, is a proud Beyoncé advocate, and has an incredible shoe game.


"In an era clamoring for justice and equality, Dr. Akilah Cadet emerges as a light to follow with her seminal work, White Supremacy Is All Around. This book is not merely a call for awareness but a call to action, urging readers to dismantle the structures that perpetuate the racial pitfalls of a nation and world. With masterfully relatable prose, Dr. Cadet equips us with the knowledge to recognize the insidious nature of systemic racism. White Supremacy Is All Around is more than a book--it's a necessary chapter in the narrative of our society, written by a woman whose life's work champions the empowerment of the marginalized and the reimagining of the institutions that bind us."--Frederick Joseph, New York Times bestselling author of Patriarchy Blues
"Dr. Akilah Cadet is a phenomenal storyteller. Her book is intimate and raw and can easily be read in one sitting. My jaw was at the floor multiple times, and reading the chapter on her father has given me so much to digest on my own experiences with my dad. As a non-Black person of color, I am beyond moved with what was shared and hope that folks read with open hearts as Dr. Cadet pours hers out so generously."--Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodríguez, author of For Brown Girls with Sharp Edges and Tender Hearts
"Dr. Akilah offers an intimate and heartfelt rebuttal to the ableist, oppressive systems that persist, and shares her voice on behalf of all those silenced by it."--Nicole Cardoza, Educator, magician
"You can trust Dr. Akilah Cadet to write a book that will captivate the hell out of readers. She does an astonishing job of creating space for super-direct conversations around racism and healing--with expertise, humor, and, oh, a great shoe game. Whether you're learning to recognize and dismantle oppression or trying to heal from it, this ground-breaking book is your wise and witty ally."--Melisse Gelula, Award-winning editor, and cofounder of Well + Good
