Waterstones Says

An accessible and intelligent primer in anti-racism and white privilege, The Black Friend covers a number of important topics with the input of key figures in the fields of racial justice and awareness.     

"The Black Friend is THE book everyone needs to read right now... Read it, absorb it, and be changed because of it." -Angie Thomas, author of The Hate U Give

Speaking directly to the reader, Frederick Joseph offers powerful reflections on his own experiences with racism. As a former "token Black kid", he now presents himself as the friend many readers need, touching on topics including cultural appropriation, "reverse racism" and white privilege. Featuring interviews with figures such as writer Angie Thomas, content creator Toni Tone, and April Reign, founder of the #OscarsSoWhite movement, this book serves as conversation starter and tool kit, creating a timely and essential read for committed anti-racists and newcomers to the cause of racial justice alike.
