Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People about Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge - Final Thoughts
Time & Location
About the Event
Award-winning journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge was frustrated with the way that discussions of race and racism are so often led by those blind to it, by those willfully ignorant of its legacy. Her response, Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race, has transformed the conversation both in Britain and around the world.
Examining everything from eradicated black history to the political purpose of white dominance, from whitewashed feminism to the inextricable link between class and race, Eddo-Lodge offers a timely and essential new framework for how to see, acknowledge, and counter racism.
This is a searing, illuminating, absolutely necessary exploration of what it is to be a person of colour in Britain today, and an essential handbook for anyone looking to understand how structural racism works.
