Have you ever heard or experienced a microaggression or stereotype? Something that didn't sit quite right, but you weren't sure how to challenge it, or if you even should? A sideways 'where are you from? No, originally?' or 'I'm not racist, most of my friends are black'. Maybe it was a well meant comment and yet it made you pause and wonder how on earth you should behave in this situation, or wish you had the tools to shut such misguided comments down.
Elijah Lawal, author of The Clapback, is here to arm you with quick, witty, unexpected and punchy responses to harmful racist stereotypes. Discover the tools you need to shut racism down with humour, historical context and detailed research. Learn how to be a good ally, a better colleague or friend, and simply have more effective conversations about race.
Elijah will be in conversation with Ariatu PR Founder, Ronke Lawal at this event, sparking interesting conversation and debate.
