‘Black History Matters – Made in Manchester’ – Online Book Sales

Thursday 9 December 2021

Join the Graduate Centre for Europe for a reading and discussion group on ‘Natives: Race and Class in the Ruins of Empire’ by Akala (2018).

 

In ‘Natives’, Akala explores policing, education, identity, racism, politics and colonialism through his own experiences of the intersections between race and class, examining how his own life has been shaped by the legacies of the British empire.

In doing so, he confronts the denial of and reluctance to interrogate issues of race and class which are central to Britain’s colonial legacies, as well as the romanticisation of the British empire. In the current climate of the so-called ‘culture wars’, examining the political, social and historical factors which have resulted in this troubling landscape is essential. Therefore, the GCfE will be facilitating a discussion on ‘Natives’ and the critical issues it explores.
