My Awakening: A Path to Racial Understanding is a 1998 autobiography[1] written by David Duke.[2]

Duke reported in 1999 that Louisiana Republican governor Mike Foster's money had essentially financed My Awakening after Duke told a grand jury that during the 1995 Louisiana governor's race Foster had secretly bought Duke's list of contributors and supporters.[3]


Duke details his social philosophies and the reasoning behind racial segregation.

Glayde Whitney, a Florida State University psychology professor wrote the foreword to the book, calling Duke a "seeker of truth."[4]


The Anti-Defamation League book review called, "David Duke's My Awakening: A Minor League Mein Kampf", and refers to it as containing racist, antisemitic, sexist, and anti-gay views.[5]
