MARCH BOOK SELECTION

Black Women Connect book selection for March 2019 is Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge.

Book Summary:

In 2014, award-winning journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge wrote about her frustration with the way that discussions of race and racism in Britain were being led by those who weren't affected by it. She posted a piece on her blog, entitled: 'Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race' that led to this book.

Exploring issues from eradicated black history to the political purpose of white dominance, whitewashed feminism to the inextricable link between class and race, Reni Eddo-Lodge offers a timely and essential new framework for how to see, acknowledge and counter racism. It is a searing, illuminating, absolutely necessary exploration of what it is to be a person of colour in Britain today


BWC: Sisters in the City, are events and activities geared towards making new friends and engaging in new experiences from wine tasting, art to dinner, movies and performances and everything in-between. There will be a mixture of free and paid events. Please note that you are responsible to pay the venue or buy your tickets yourself. To join the Black Women Connect!
