A Gentle Invitation into the Challenging Topic of Privilege
Gently addressing the challenging topics of privilege and race, power, and inequality, White Picket Fences is a memoir of Amy Julia Becker’s growing awareness of the unequal benefits (and secret harm) she received by virtue of her white skin, Protestant heritage, education, and able body.

Through telling her own story, Amy Julia Becker shares her process to acknowledge and examine the injustice, oppression and silence that has characterized American history and her own life. These forces of division, social power, and unequal opportunities are still active and relevant to the church, education system, and even the books we give our children to read today. She reflects on her upper-middle-class childhood both in the American South and later New England, her own struggles with perfectionism, and raising a child with a disability, in light of privilege.

Amy Julia Becker guides readers through her growing realization of how inequality has negatively impacted herself and others. “Privilege harms everyone,” she writes, “those who are excluded from it and those who benefit from it.” Black and white, rich and poor, strong and weak.
