The London based
journalist Eddo-Lodge, a black feminist, published a blog post in 2014 entitled
Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People
about Race. This went viral and led her to write a book under the same
title. The book is an insightful and urgent account of how racism manifests itself in British society. Mirza is also an author, and has written a number
of significant works, including the 2008 bestseller Race, Gender and
Educational Desire: Why Black Women Succeed and Fail. In addition to this,
she is Professor of Race, Faith and Culture at Goldsmiths.
