Emma Dabiri announces new book ‘What White People Can Do Next’

Words: Dylan Murphy

It follows the 2019 release of Don’t Touch My Hair.

Irish-Nigerian author, academic and broadcaster Emma Dabiri has revealed the cover for her new book What White People Can Do Next: From Allyship to Coalition.

The announcement of her latest release follows her debut book Don’t Touch My Hair, which was published in 2019. Don’t Touch My Hair looks at the discriminatory behaviour surrounding afro hair and uses historical context and personal anecdotes to dig into wider stigmatization in society.

Raised in Dublin for part of her life, Emma has hosted BBC Four’s Britain’s Lost Masterpieces, featured in a Channel 4 documentary Is Love Racist? and worked in various other broadcast roles.

The description of the new book reads, “When it comes to racial justice, how do we transform demonstrations of support into real and meaningful change? With intellectual rigour and razor-sharp wit, Emma Dabiri cuts through the haze of online discourse to offer clear advice.”

Speaking on Twitter, Emma said, “Delighted to share the cover for #WhatWhitePeopleCanDoNext. WWPCDN is full of surprises and I think this cover alludes to that so beautifully. I love it so much.”

Emma also revealed the colourful cover of the book, which is due to be published by Penguin Books and available for shipping 4 March 2021.
