White supremacy is damaging. It damages not only people of color and those white people who actively work to uphold white supremacist ideals, but also white people who actively work against white supremacy in the name of antiracism. Not easy, this work is often characterized by loss and confusion, compounded by the ways we frequently try to simplify it. But by not examining and addressing the actual, lived tensions and contradictions white people face in their attempts to navigate race, white people are also limited in their efforts to take antiracist action. This edited volume thus examines whiteness in the lived experiences of young children, family members, students, teachers, and school administrators. It focuses on racism and antiracism within the context of relationships: with both white people and people color. In this volume, the authors collectively argue that we cannot read or understand whiteness as a phenomenon outside of other identities, locations, and relationships-in other words, the stories, people, and situations of our daily lives. These stories attempt to provide more sophisticated, nuanced ways of addressing the role(s) of race and (anti)racism in white people's lives. Centering storytelling, this collection both illustrates the relative privileges from which white people benefit and acknowledges the ways in which the social construction of whiteness creates barriers to humanizing relationships. The authors contribute to emergent critiques of white privilege in education and take existing research on whiteness, white teachers, and white privilege further by accounting for how white people might be positioned in, and become obstructed by, broader conversations and knowledges about race in their schools, communities, and home lives. The authors-teachers, administrators, and researchers-examine the pain, violence, depression, loss, and confusion that are often associated with white supremacy. These stories are about the ways white people attempt-and fail-at antiracist work. Collectively, they argue that stories about whiteness-stories about how one comes to be white-matter and that white people must put whiteness on the table in daily life.
