My debut book, The Good Ally is OUT NOW via your favourite bookseller or online: https://www.waterstones.com/book/the-good-ally/nova-reid/9780008439484 In this episode it's just you and me kiddo wrapping up and reflecting on an incredible season. Going solo to share more about my author journey and barriers to author success. I also talk about healing and why courage and vulnerability are necessary to be anti-racist AND, I treat you to a little exclusive reading from my debut book The Good Ally.
The Good Ally is an urgent call to arms to become better allies - and, in turn, human beings - against racism, and provides a thoughtful approach centering collective healing to do so. It is a book for those against persistent racial injustice, hungry to expand their knowledge and understanding of systemic racism in Britain and beyond. It intricately uncovers the roots of racism and its birthplace, anti-Blackness. It is for those who not only want to be able to better recognise both subtle and overt forms of racism in action, and to examine their powerful role in it, but who want to know what to tangibly do about it. The answer often lies within.
Full of punch, humour and hope and packed with searing research and case studies – some toe-curling, some blood-boiling – The Good Ally will show you how, with knowledge, a dose of self-interrogation and a lot of courage, we can broker privilege and create powerful change.
