APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Reni Eddo-Lodge was fed up of having the same, emotionally exhausting conversations about race, so wrote a book about it as her final statement on the matter. In Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race, the award-winning journalist takes us through the history of slavery and racism in Britain and explains how it has come to manifest itself in in our modern world. The result is an accessible read for those wanting to educate themselves on the issues of anti-blackness, white privilege and systemic racism, as well as the intersectionality of class and gender. Offering practical advice and solutions on how to tackle racism in our everyday lives, this is a critical text—and one offering hope.
