The essential anti-racist book from one of the world's leading voices for change

'With This Is Why I Resist, Dr Shola is shaking a nation out of its slumber.' Annie Lennox OBE

'Smart and courageous, this book should be on everyone's must-read list.' Naomi Campbell

'Written with fearless articulacy, this book recalibrates the conversation on race to ignite transformational change.' David Lammy MP

'This book is a passionate call to arms for anyone who wishes to look the other way. It is a must read.' Professor Kate Williams

'Inclusive, exciting and focused, This Is Why I Resist is a fantastic point of reference for intersectional anti-racism work, no matter who you are.' Munroe Bergdorf


In 2020 we have seen clearer than ever that Black people are still fighting for the right to be judged by the content of their character and not the colour of their skin. In the words of the author, "there is no freedom without rights and no rights without the freedom to exercise those rights."

This book demands change, because Black people are done waiting.

In This Is Why I Resist activist and political commentator, Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu digs down into the deep roots of racism and anti-blackness in the UK and the US. Using real life examples from the modern day, Dr Shola shows us the different forms racism takes in our day-to-day lives and asks us to raise our voice to end the oppression. She delves into subjects not often explored such as racial gatekeepers, white ingratitude, performative allyship (those black squares on Instagram), current identity politics and abuse of the Black trans community.

This book will challenge you. It will make you think. Bust most importantly, it will inspire you take action.

It's time for a conscious revolution.
