Join Reni Eddo-Lodge for a discussion about her critically acclaimed book, Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race – an urgent and powerful analysis of race in Modern Britain from one of the country’s most inspiring young journalists.

Taking its title from the viral blog post that voiced the frustrations of so many and changed the conversation about race in the media, Reni’s book creates a new framework for how to see, acknowledge and counter racism. In it, she explores everything from the erasure of black history to the political purpose of white dominance; from the whitewashing of feminism to the link between class and race. An award-winning writer, Reni has written for publications including The New York Times, the Guardian, Dazed and Confused and the hit anthology The Good Immigrant.
