Why I'm No Longer Talking To White People About Race

By Reni Eddo-Lodge

The conversation starter around race relations in the UK for the whole of 2018. This has been endlessly referred to by news media, broadcasters and activists since it’s publication early in 2018.

In 2014, award-winning journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge wrote about her frustration with the way that discussions of race and racism in Britain were being led by those who weren't affected by it. She posted a piece on her blog, entitled: 'Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race' that led to this book. The book has since won multiple prestigious literary awards and consistently topped reading charts worldwide.

Exploring issues from eradicated black history to the political purpose of white dominance, whitewashed feminism to the inextricable link between class and race, Reni Eddo-Lodge offers a timely and essential new framework for how to see, acknowledge and counter racism. It is a searing, illuminating, absolutely necessary exploration of what it is to be a person of colour in Britain today. The ultimate guide for anyone frustrated by comments about race being an ‘American issue’. This brings the race discussion back to the colonialist foundations race relations are built upon.
