About “Why I am No Longer Talking to White People About Race” and Reni Eddo-Lodge:

In 2014, award-winning journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge wrote about her frustration at how the discussions about race and racism in Britain were conducted by those who were not affected. She published an article in her blog entitled “Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race”. Her words struck a nerve. The post went viral and comments flowed in desperately from others to talk about their own experiences. Motivated by this, Reni Eddo-Lodge dug into eradicated Black history to political purpose of white dominance, whitewashed feminism and inextricable link between class and race. Reni Eddo-Lodge offers a timely and essential framework for how to see, acknowledge and counter racism.
