Woke and Well-Read Book Club: “Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race” by Reni Eddo-Lodge

Please join the Woke & Well-Read Book Club in our 2nd year at Big Blue Marble! Our April read is Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge, a book that sparked a national conversation. Exploring everything from eradicated black history to the inextricable link between class and race, Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race is the essential handbook for anyone who wants to understand race relations in Britain today.

Woke & Well-Read explores life through African-American eyes, and is open to all. We meet two nights each month - the discussion is the same, and even more people can attend.
