_Dispatches from the Diaspora: From Nelson Mandela to Black Lives Matter_, Gary Younge's brand-new collection of journalism, will be discussed with us at the bookshop, and we couldn't be more excited! This book is a collection of his work that spans his whole career as a broadcaster, journalist, and academic, all of which have garnered high praise.
A powerful collection of journalism on race, racism and black life and death from one of the nation's leading political voices. For the last three decades Gary Younge has had a ringside seat during the biggest events and with the most significant personalities to impact the black diaspora: accompanying Nelson Mandela on his first election campaign, joining revellers on the southside of Chicago during Obama's victory, entering New Orleans days after hurricane Katrina or interviewing Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Maya Angelou and Stormzy. He has witnessed how much change is possible and the power of systems to thwart those aspirations. _Dispatches from the Diaspora_ is an unrivalled body of work from a unique perspective that takes you to the frontlines and compels you to engage and to 'imagine a world in which you might thrive, for which there is no evidence. And then fight for it.'
