Paperback / softback

Description

'It's brave and honest, and not a moment too soon.' Afua Hirsch, Brit(ish)'[An] outstanding myth-busting book.

Everyone should read it.' Bernardine EvaristoWhat is the experience of Black men in Britain today?

Never has the conversation about racism and inclusion been more important; there is no better time to explore this question and give Black British men a platform to answer it.

SAFE: 20 Ways to be a Black Man in Britain Today is that platform.

Including essays from top poets, writers, musicians, actors and journalists, this timely and accessible book is in equal parts a celebration, a protest, a call to arms, and a dismantling of the stereotypes surrounding being a Black man.

What does it really mean to reclaim and hold space in the landscape of our society? Where do Black men belong in school, in the media, in their own families, in the conversation about mental health, in the LGBTQ+ community, in grime music - and how can these voices inspire, educate and add to the dialogue of diversity already taking place?

Following on from discussions raised by Natives and Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race, this collection takes readers on a rich and varied path to confront and question the position of Black men in Britain today, and shines a light on the way forward.
