‘An absolute blockbuster of clear thinking and new angles…the most clear, alliance building, shame removing look at race. Emma is once-in-a generation clever’ Caitlin Moran

We need to talk about racial injustice in a different way: one that builds on the revolutionary ideas of the past and forges new connections.

In this incisive, radical and practical essay, Emma Dabiri – acclaimed author of Don’t Touch My Hair – draws on years of research and personal experience to challenge us to create meaningful, lasting change.

‘Impactful . . . Emma expertly outlines how the idea of race was constructed to bolster capitalism and explains how, in a divided world, unity and coalition are needed to create a future that works for everyone’ Cosmopolitan
