Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race

Hay Festival 2017, 

A powerful and provocative argument on the role that race and racism play in modern Britain. Exploring issues from eradicated black history to the political purpose of white dominance, whitewashed feminism and the inextricable link between class and race, the journalist offers a timely and essential new framework for how to see, acknowledge and counter racism. Chaired by Sarfraz Manzoor.
