Waterstones Says

Boasting contributors from Doreen Lawrence to David Olusoga, Henry and Ryder's wide-ranging and urgent anthology highlights the vital benefits that Black Britons bring to society and the crucial importance of eradicating systemic racism.

In response to the international outcry at George Floyd's death, Lenny Henry and Marcus Ryder have commissioned this collection of essays to discuss how and why we need to fight for Black lives to matter - not just for Black people but for society as a whole.

Recognising Black British experience within the Black Lives Matter movement, seventeen prominent Black figures explain why Black lives should be celebrated when too often they are undervalued. Drawing from personal experience, they stress how Black British people have unique perspectives and experiences that enrich British society and the world; how Black lives are far more interesting and important than the forces that try to limit it.

'We achieve everything not because we are superhuman. We achieve the things we achieve because we are human. Our strength does not come from not having any weaknesses, our strength comes from overcoming them' -  Doreen Lawrence.

'I always presumed racism would always be here, that it was a given. But the truth is, it was not always here, it was invented.' - David Olusoga

'Our identity and experience will shape every story, bleed into every poem, inform every essay whether it's about Black 'issues' or not' - Kit de Waal
