Emma Dabiri: Ireland, Fashion and Madonna

The bestselling Author of Don't Touch My Hair and What White People Can Do Next: From Allyship to Coalition, Emma Dabiri has produced game changing work. An academic and a broadcaster too, her books, documentaries and frequent writing on race and racism draw on years of research and personal experience to challenge us all to create meaningful, lasting change. Born in Dublin to an Irish mother and a Nigerian father, here Emma talks in depth about her memories of growing up in Ireland as a young black woman and how much the Irish language means to her. If you don’t know much about Ireland and Irish culture, or even if you do for that matter, listen up, this chat has great insights and observations!
