I loved this. It‘s the black British woman‘s experience and full of advice.
Whilst this wasn‘t written for me I would happily recommend it to anyone, I learnt a lot about issues in the uk as lots of books about race and racism are from a American perspective and whilst you know there will be parallels you don‘t know the subtle differences people face in the uk.

Weaponxgirl The parts about mental health were particularly illuminating to me. Non white people are less likely to be offered counselling services and more likely to be sectioned and then once again more likely to be restrained when in these systems. This is not good enough! 5mo
Weaponxgirl The part about schooling and universities was also great. As often poverty affects black communities more they come at it from a working class perspective and tbh I‘ve never heard such great advice that I could have benefited from when younger as a white working class girl. I have so much respect for what these women have done with this book and I learned a lot of new things. 5mo
Weaponxgirl One of the authors also writes in the guardian and I always enjoy her column. 5mo
eraderneely I didn‘t realize this was UK based. I also find that most books about race are from the US. Stacking! 5mo
SW-T Another one for my TBR list. Thank you 😊 5mo
