Why I?M No Longer Talking To White People About Race

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER"This is a book that was begging to be written. This is the kind of book that demands a future where we?ll no longer need such a book. Essential." --Marlon James?The most important book for me this year.? --Emma WatsonSelected by Emma Watson as the Our Shared Shelf Book Club Pick for January/February 2018Sunday Times BestsellerWinner of the British Book Awards Nonfiction Narrative Book of the YearWinner of the Jhalak PrizeFoyles Nonfiction Book of the YearBlackwell?s Nonfiction Book of the YearNamed One of the Best Books of 2017 by:NPRThe GuardianThe ObserverThe Brooklyn RailCultured VulturesAward-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.Review?This is a book that was begging to be written. This is the kind of book that demands a future where we'll no longer need such a book. Essential.? ?Marlon James, author of Man Booker Prize-winning A BRIEF HISTORY OF SEVEN KILLINGS?This political, accessible and uncompromising book has got people talking about race and racism in Britain.? ?Guardian, "Books of the Year"?Searing ... A fresh perspective, offering an Anglocentric alternative to the recent status-quo-challenging successes of Get Out and Dear White People. This book's probing analysis and sharp wit certainly make us pray she will continue talking to white people about race.? ?Harper's Bazaar?A clear and convincing dissection of racism and the white denial that perpetuates it.? ?Our Best Adult Books of 2017 - Nonfiction, starred review, Shelf Awareness?A plainspoken, hard-hitting take on mainstream British society's avoidance of race and the complexities and manifestations of racism . . . Eddo-Lodge's crisp prose and impassioned voice implore white Britain to look beyond obvious racism to acknowledge the more opaque existence of structural racism . . . With this thoughtful and direct book, Eddo-Lodge stokes the very conversation that the title rejects.? ?Publishers Weekly?In her probing and personal narrative, Eddo-Lodge offers fresh insight into the way all racism is ultimately a 'white problem' that must be addressed by commitment to action, no matter how small . . . A sharp, compelling, and impassioned book.? ?Kirkus Reviews?The provocative title is hard to ignore, and so is the book's cover. Seen from afar, it appears to be called Why I'm No Longer Talking About Race, which is intriguing enough on its own. You have to look closer to see To White People hiding underneath it in debossed letters. It's a striking visual representation of white people's blindness to everyday, structural racism . . . It's that boldness, that straight talk which makes this book memorable. Eddo-Lodge pushes readers to recognize that racism is a systemic problem that needs to be tackled by those who run the system? ?NPR.org?You don't have to live in the U.K. to recognize the issues of white privilege, class, feminism and structural racism that [Eddo-Lodge] explores in this essential book.? ?Silvia Vi
