Unlearning Race in 2020? Thomas Chatterton Williams

0

As tensions rise over racial divisions throughout the western world, books like 'White Fragility' and 'How to Be An Anti-Racist' have flown to the top of the bestseller lists. These frame race as central to our understanding of the world. In his book, 'Unlearning Race, Self-Portrait in Black and White', Thomas Chatterton Williams takes a very different tack, attempting to understand his own mixed race background and arguing that we should move away from seeing racial categories as primary and fixed.

What does he make of this new focus on race, and how does identity politics wall us off from each other?
