Would anyone like to join me in reading and thinking about current writing on racism, the history of white privilege and what being an ally might involve in retirement?
I am white, was brought up in Dorset, living and working in social care and health in London for 40+ years where understanding diversity, race and power has been of critical importance personally and professionally.
Now retired, I’d like us to explore some of the new writing by black authors and discuss how their knowledge and experience can deepen our understanding of racism now and how we can contribute to change.
Mostly non-fiction – such as Reni Eddo-Lodge, Afua Hirsch, Jeffrey Boakye, and maybe fiction like Colston Whitehead, but open to ideas …
