The Sunday Times bestseller that reveals the uncomfortable truth about race and identity in Britain today

The Sunday Times bestseller that reveals the uncomfortable truth about race and identity in Britain today. Your parents are British. Your partner, your children and most of your friends are British. So why do people keep asking where you’re from? We are a nation in denial about our imperial past and the racism that plagues our present. Brit(ish) is Afua Hirsch’s personal and provocative exploration of how this came to be – and an urgent call for change. The book for our divided and dangerous times’ David Olusoga.

Afua Hirsch is a writer, journalist and broadcaster. Hirsch does justice to a much avoided and misrepresented topic: race and identity in Britain

Afua Hirsch is a writer, journalist and broadcaster. She is a columnist for the Guardian, and appears regularly on the BBC, Sky News and CNN. Brit(ish) is her first book and was awarded a Royal Society of Literature Jerwood Prize for Non-Fiction. Customers who bought this item also bought. Hirsch does justice to a much avoided and misrepresented topic: race and identity in Britain. This book gives a powerful insight into the experiences of migrant communities living in the UK during the wake of Brexit and the disturbingly growing levels of neo-fascism in the UK. I must read for anyone looking to understand 21st century issues surrounding race in the UK.

Jan 16, 2018 Melanie (Mel's Bookland Adventures) rated it it was amazing. Afua Hirsch has in opinion written the most important book I ever read on the race divide in Britain, that should be read not just by those that are already singing in the choir but by everyone. If you know me, you may well get this book for your next birthday

Of course, centuries of colonialism, slavery and the relative failure of the African continent has left scars on both white and black minds

Of course, centuries of colonialism, slavery and the relative failure of the African continent has left scars on both white and black minds. This is the problem with focusing so relentlessly on white racism: you deny agency to the many non-white groups that have arrived since 1950 with distinctive histories, priorities, attitudes to education and so on, and so cannot explain why some have flourished (East African Asians, Chinese, many Indians, some Africans) and others less so (Caribbeans and Pakistanis).

It is about the everyday racism that plagues British society. In this personal and provocative investigation, Afua Hirsch explores a very British crisis of identity. It is about our awkward, troubled relationship with our history. It is about why liberal attempts to be 'colour-blind' have caused more problems than they have solved. It is about why we continue to avoid talking about race. We are a nation in denial about our past and our present. We believe we are the nation of abolition, but forget we are the nation of slavery.
