Reni Eddo-Lodge

Reni Eddo-Lodge lives in London and has spent half a decade writing, thinking and speaking about racism. Before she was a full-time writer, she was blogger and activist. During that time, The Guardian listed her as one of the 30 most exciting people under 30 in digital media. She has also been listed in Elle Magazine’s 100 Inspirational Women list, and The Root’s 30 black viral voices under 30. Her work can be found at The New York Times, The Guardian, The Independent, The Telegraph, The Voice Newspaper, New Humanist Magazine, Buzzfeed, Vice, i-D Magazine and Dazed and Confused Magazine. Her first book, WHY I’M NO LONGER TALKING TO WHITE PEOPLE ABOUT RACE, was published by Bloomsbury in June 2017 to wide acclaim. ‘This is a book that was begging to be written. This is the kind of book that demands a future where we’ll no longer need such a book. Essential’  – Marlon James, author of Man Booker Prize-winning A Brief History of Seven Killings
