Written by athlete, activist and mental health advocate Alison Désir, Running While Black is an exposé on the whiteness of running—a supposedly egalitarian sport—and a call to reimagine the industry.

Features

  • Weaves historical context together with the author's own story of growth in the sport
  • Désir unpacks how we got here and advocates for a world where everyone is free to safely experience the life-changing power of movement

Made in USA.

From the publisher:
Running saved author Alison Désir's life. At rock bottom and searching for meaning and structure, Désir started marathon training, finding that it vastly improved both her physical and mental health. Yet as she became involved in the community and learned its history, she realized that the sport was largely built with white people in mind. Running While Black draws on Désir's experience as an endurance athlete, activist and mental health advocate to explore why the seemingly simple, human act of long distance running for exercise and health has never been truly open to Black people.
