From the first time, he was stopped and searched as a child, to the day he realised his mum was white, to his first encounters with racist teachers – race and class have shaped Akala’s life and outlook. In this unique book, he takes his own experiences and widens them out to look at the social, historical and political factors that have left us where we are today.
