Wednesday 20th July

‘The debate on racism is a game to some and I don’t want to play.’ – Reni Eddo-Lodge

In June 2020, as the murder of George Floyd and the emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement reverberated around the world, one book stood out as a way to make sense of the moment. Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge became a lightning rod for a national conversation about racial inequality and why we need a better understanding of Black history.

Eddo-Lodge said her desire for the book was not to give a prescription for what to do next but to provide the tools for people to think critically about racism and challenge it around them. Originally published in 2017 the book has won countless awards and sold over one million copies. Now Eddo-Lodge is back with an updated edition reflecting on events of the past few years. Has society gone ‘woke’? Is antiracism being hijacked by the culture wars? And how do we make sense of the racial reckoning of 2020 and the backlash against it?

Join Eddo-Lodge live in person on Wednesday July 20 for an evening of insight, understanding and an opportunity to put your questions to one of the most renowned thinkers on race today.
