Author(s): Shola Mos-Shogbamimu
This book is the hard conversation we must have. Black people are still fighting for the right to be judged by the content of their character and not the colour of their skin, and in the words of the author, "there is no freedom without rights and no rights without the freedom to exercise those rights." This book demands change, because black people are done waiting. In This Is Why I Resist activist and political commentator, Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu digs down into the deep roots of racism and anti-blackness in the UK and the US. Using real life examples from the modern day, Dr Shola shows how the racism that manifests in our day-to-day lives is a product of a long history of white supremacy and oppression. This book is an unfettered call to anti-racist action. It's time for a conscious revolution.
