EVENT: Allyship and coalition from a black perspective – a conversation with Emma Dabiri

Published:

Acclaimed academic and author, Emma Dabiri discussed her most recent book with Matthew Ryder QC, a senior barrister at Matrix and former Deputy Mayor of London.

Book imageDabiri’s powerful polemic, ‘What white people can do next – from allyship to coalition’, was written last year in the wake of the historic events of the George Floyd murder and the Black Lives Matter demonstrations of 2020.

Drawing on academic research and cultural themes throughout the book, Dabiri offers a critical perspective on established models of white ‘allyship’. She advocates for an alternative model of ‘coalition’, leading to authentic collaboration and meaningful change.
