Following an overwhelming response on her online resource, ‘Emma Dabiri, Irish-Nigerian author and broadcaster has announced the release date of her book What White People Can Do Next.
Allen Lane, founder of Penguin Books, a leading publisher in the UK will now be publishing the second book of the author after the success of her debut book, Don’t Touch My Hair.
The book, originally inspired by the ‘#BlackLivesMatter’ movement after the death of George Floyd, is an “essential and practical guide that urges a movement from allyship to coalition”.
In her book What White People Can Do Next, Dabiri will be questioning popular shibboleths such as ‘White Supremacy’ and ‘White Privilege’ through a combination of her studies and personal reflection.
The book will be published on March 4, 2021 and is said to be a “practical resource offering accessible guidance that will aim to cut through the overwhelming online discourse.”
“I was blown away by the response to my ‘White People’ online resource, and welcome the opportunity to delve deeper and expand on its themes. I think we’ve nailed how to say what we don’t want but find it much harder to articulate what we do—let alone how to achieve it…
This is a book about the part that’s often missing, about the ‘where we go from here’ and the ‘what’ it is we do next.”Emma Dabiri
