Make it Plain

Sep 22, 2023

In this week's Black World News, Kehinde discusses the murder charge of the police officer who killed Chris Kaba.
In this week's interview, Kehinde talks with Professor Nicola Rollock about the under-representation of Black women at the post-graduate and professorial level, why they’re not optimistic about change in their field, the question of White antiracist allyship, her new book The Racial Code, and Nicola’s top three things to address racial issues. 

Professor Nicola Rollock is a Professor of Social Policy & Race at King’s College London, a Distinguished Fellow at the Faculty of Education at the University of Cambridge, and also runs her own consultancy business.  She helps people think critically about how they understand racial justice and, as a result, implement better strategies for change. She is also the author of “The Racial Code: Tales of Resistance and Survival” (2022), released in paperback form this week, where she makes a case for everyday and more subtle forms of racism.
