About This Book

Overcome Hatred with Coffee and Conversation

Özlem Cekic, creator of #dialoguecoffee, turned hate mail and threats from racists and religious extremists into productive, bridge-building conversations—and you can, too.

Learn how to change the world—and change your life. We've all heard the expression "be the change you want to see in the world." But how do you actually do that?

When Özlem Cekic became the first Muslim MP in the Danish Parliament, her email inbox was inundated with hate mail and threats, and her gut reaction was to delete and ignore each abusive message. But eventually, she decided to take a risk. She started replying to each message and inviting the senders to meet and engage in dialogue over coffee. And with time, understanding, and patience, she began to make a difference, both in the lives of those who hated her before even meeting her, and in her own life.

Discover the journey behind the Dialogue Coffee Ted Talk with over a million viewers. In Overcoming Hate Through Dialogue learn the answers to questions like:

  • Where do negative emotions like anger, frustration, and hatred come from?
  • Can conversations break down prejudices and create change and understanding?
  • What happens when we start looking for things we have in common instead of focusing only on our differences?

Readers of memoirs and books on activism and social change like How to Be an Antiracist, Lead from the Outside, or Rising Out of Hatred will be inspired and encouraged by Overcoming Hate Through Dialogue.
