Dr. Alison Bailey was recently interviewed about her newly published book, The Weight of Whiteness: A Feminist Engagement with Privilege, Race, and Ignorance (2021)

Her interview with Alexis Shotwell appears on the Blog of the APA website. In her book, she invites the reader to “wade slowly and mindfully into the weight of whiteness, and to attend to the ways white supremacy has misshapen our nation, our communities, and our humanity.” 

Bailey is a professor of philosophy at Illinois State University where she directs the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program.
