About the Event

American writer and journalist Ijeoma Oluo joins us to discuss her latest book, Mediocre: The Dangerous Legacy of White Male Power.

 

The author of the New York Times bestselling So You Want to Talk About Race, Oluo’s Mediocre critically examines the last 150 years of American history - from the mythic stories of Western cowboys to the protests against police brutality - to offer a crucial argument that everything we thought we knew about American identity has been skewed by white male power.

As much a subversive and deeply researched history of the United States as it is a rallying call for all women to reject what’s gone before, Mediocre sees Oluo create a vision for a new white male identity - which is as critical for the progression of the UK as it is the US. 

Join Oluo as she talks to Yomi Adegoke, journalist and author of Slay in Your Lane, in this special livestreamed event.

If you live in the UK, you can purchase a ticket with a copy of Mediocre: The Dangerous Legacy of White Male Power at checkout for the special combined price of £18 including postage and packing (RRP £16.99).*
