The most important book for me this year. -Emma Watson Selected by Emma Watson as the Our Shared Shelf Book Club Pick for Jan/Feb 2018 Sunday Times Bestseller Winner of the British Book Awards Nonfiction Narrative Book of the Year Winner of the Jhalak Prize Foyles Nonfiction Book of the Year Blackwell's Nonfiction Book of the Year One of the Best Books of 2017: NPR Guardian Observer Brooklyn Rail Cultured Vultures 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. Including a new afterword by the author, this is a searing, illuminating, absolutely necessary exploration of what it is to be a person of color in Britain today, and an essential handbook for anyone looking to understand how structural racism works.
