Emma Dabiri • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #430
Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
This week Pip is joined by inspirational author and activist EMMA DABIRI!
Recorded at a time of political weirdness (a backdrop as old as time), illicit government parties feel pretty low down the list compared with the content of what Emma gets into with this episode. Just listen to her break down the origins of slavery in the early part, where she traces race as a construct to the roots, and charts its spread from there on. Emma’s expert delivery does not end there, for that is merely the tip of the iceberg of what is a very useful, inspiring and absolutely information-packed episode, where she also goes into her book and the inspirations behind the title, her upbringing in Ireland and Atlanta with Nigerian and Irish parents, being subliminally introduced into black politics from a very early age, and again, tracing certain elements of slavery and racism to the origins in order to better understand the impact and resonance. I mean, just listen, and read the book. And share this episode too - it’s a great one.
