Molly Secours' New Book "White Privilege Pop Quiz" Drawing Early National Praise

Renowned Nashville Writer Tests Readers With Poignant, Easy to Answer Questions to Further Racial Conversations

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - eTradeWire -- Molly Secours, an esteemed filmmaker, writer and public speaker based in Nashville, Tenn., has been a voice for social change for much of her adult life.  She has produced more than 60 films and videos about disparities in education, criminal justice and healthcare.

         Yet perhaps her greatest contribution to America comes in the form of her newly-authored book entitled White Privilege Pop Quiz, a poignant, 130-page work that urges audiences to unearth their deepest biases by simply taking a quiz that reveals "White Privilege"--a term that has been thrust into the country's consciousness due to the Black Lives Matter movement and recent social protests through the United States.

         In fact, it was the tragic murder of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla. that sparked Secours into writing her first book.  She dedicates White Privilege Pop Quiz in memory of Martin and other African Americans who unjustifiably have been killed in recent years including very recently, George Floyd.

         The book is published by Dark Horse Books ($15.99, Nashville, Tenn.) and is available online (Amazon.com and MollySecours.com/book) and major bookstores, beginning on Nov. 10. Promotion by Parnassus Bookstore (3900 Hillsboro Pike, Nashville, 615-953-2243) featuring Secours on a Zoom call presentation. (TBA)

         Secours also announced that a portion of the book's proceeds will go to several non-profit organizations that support marginalized youth and communities, as well as the Keep Swinging Foundation.


"This book is not something you should read if you just want to appear 'woke' as the young people say," said Nontombi Naomi Tutu, author/activist and daughter of Archbishop Desmond Tutu.  "If that is your aim, put it down right now. However, if you are really interested in learning how we got here, why we stay here and how we can all make it out of this system alive, this is the book for you. So get ready to be challenged, educated and inspired to make a stand against White privilege and racism."

For over 20 years, Secours has been urging audiences to look in the mirror.

White Privilege Pop Quiz consists of questions and revelations that help set a context for discussing the term White Privilege.

Each chapter of the book begins with a multiple-choice question meant to reveal, inform and inspire more questions about Whiteness and the system invented to promote Whiteness than you have ever entertained before. The hope is that perhaps the quiz will point readers in a new direction ---to think more deeply and behave more consciously.

"Unlike a pop quiz at school, there are no wrong answers, only truthful ones," stressed Secours, a Tedx speaker.
