Encounters with white privilege
LEFT OF BROWN
I am a brown fair-skinned woman working in the UK university sector. I got my PhD back in 2006 and started work in a London-based university in 2007. I'm writing about things here that I cannot publish in academic journals. These are ideas, reflections, points of connection and pieces that I am reaching out with to other academics of colour in the U.K. I am no trailblazer and follow the lead from several women of colour who continue to inspire me with their activism, writing and speaking: Shirley Anne Tate, Audre Lorde, bell hooks, Akwugo Emejulu, Goldie Osuri, Azeezat Johnson, Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan... this list keeps growing because our power is infinite.
