Synopsis

'Lucid, fluent and compelling' - Observer



'We need writers like Andrews ... These are truths we need to be hearing' - New Statesman







Back to Black traces the long and eminent history of Black radical politics. Born out of resistance to slavery and colonialism, its rich past encompasses figures such as Marcus Garvey, Angela Davis, the Black Panthers and the Black Lives Matter activists of today. At its core it argues that racism is inexorably embedded in the fabric of society, and that it can never be overcome unless by enacting change outside of this suffocating system. Yet this Black radicalism has been diluted and moderated over time; wilfully misrepresented and caricatured by others; divested of its legacy, potency, and force.



Kehinde Andrews explores the true roots of this tradition and connects the dots to today's struggles by showing what a renewed politics of Black radicalism might look like in the 21st century.

Author and educator Kehinde Andrews is one of the leading Black political voices in Britain. He is associate professor in sociology at Birmingham City University, a regular writer of opinion pieces for the Guardian, Independent and Ebony magazine, and editor of the series 'Blackness in Britain'. He was part of the team that launched the first Black Studies degree in Europe, and is Co-chair of the Black Studies Association and of the Harambee Organisation of Black Unity. He regularly appears on television and radio.

Staff Choice

An engaging, concise and clear-sighted history of black radicalism from Garvey to Black Lives Matter, travelling through Rastafarianism and the Nation of Islam to Assata and Tupac Shakur. Placing movements within the context of international politics and capitalism, Andrews questions whether justice and freedom can ever be achived when racism is embedded so deeply within these systems. Accessible, authoritative and engrossing, I'd urge anyone with an interest in the struggle to overcome racism to read this right now.
