We Need To Talk: Me and White Supremacy, with Layla Saad and Emma Dabiri

Amidst the current global conversation around police brutality in the United States and the experience of black people the world over, this week we speak to Layla Saad to investigate the role each of us has to play in dismantling white supremacy. Layla Saad spoke to author, academic and broadcaster Emma Dabiri about her book Me and White Supremacy to discuss her experience as both a black woman and ‘third culture kid’, and the challenges of anti-racist work and what it means to be a ‘good ancestor’.
