What White People Can Do Next by Emma Dabiri, Read by the Author
The Power of Coalition to Make Change
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Emma Dabiri narrates What White People Can Do Next with the same clarity, thoughtfulness, and directness with which she wrote her guide to go beyond beyond the nebulousness of “allyship” to the action of building coalitions for change. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss this short but powerful work by the Irish Nigerian author, which delves into the history of racial formation and the corresponding power and legal structures, and advocates for the need to do away with these structures to build new futures. Dabiri’s compelling writing, her warm and accented voice, and her smooth and well-paced narration combine to capture your attention, making for an audiobook you’ll want to return to, and share.
