This is Not America – Why Black Lives in Britain Matter

In this episode, Steve Brett talks with the author Tomiwa Owolade, about his book This is Not America – Why Black Lives in Britain Matter. Tom argues that racial identity is not an abstraction, but is contextual and based on different geographical and historical factors. He writes that many of the ideas we have about what it means to be black have been adopted from America, when in fact what it means to be black and British is different from what it means to be black and American.
