Synopsis

'Twenty-six years ago, I was born to white parents with no explanation as to why I looked black. Seeking answers has been an incredible journey, taking place against the backdrop of a country that routinely marginalizes and overlooks the stories of black and brown people.'



In Georgina Lawton's childhood home, her blackness was never acknowledged; the obvious fact of her mixed-race heritage was simply ignored. It was only when her beloved father died, when Georgina was just 22 years old, that the complex truth began to emerge. In the years since, Georgina has been on a personal journey to discover her own heritage and to connect with the black British culture she had no exposure to growing up. In doing so, she has found her own story mirrored in those of countless people of colour whose identity has been questioned, denied or erased. Raceless, Georgina's first book, is both the compelling personal account of a young women seeking her own story amid devastating family secrets, and a fascinating, challenging and essential examination of racial identity in modern Britain.
