'Reni Eddo-Lodge's blogspot-turned-book is an unapologetic response to a tired conversation.'
Longlisted for THE BAILLIE GIFFORD PRIZE FOR NON-FICTION, shortlisted for A BOOKS ARE MY BAG READERS AWARD, FOYLES NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR, and BLACKWELL'S NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR . . .
The book that sparked a national conversation. Exploring everything from eradicated black history to the inextricable link between class and race, Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race is the essential handbook for anyone who wants to understand race relations in Britain today.
“An incisive and uncompromising commentator on the iniquities of oppression ... Comprehensive and journalistic, the book leaves a devastating trail of case histories, statistical and anecdotal evidence, personal stories and opinion about the manifestation of overt and covert racism ... Eddo-Lodge is a gifted writer, with a talent for bringing together debates around race, gender and class in a timely and accessible way” – Times Literary Supplement
“Eddo-Lodge accurately takes the temperature of racial discussions in the UK. In seven crisp essays, she takes white British people to task for failing to accept that “racism is a white problem” … She's strong on the pervasive racial marginalization of black people” – Guardian
