Reni Eddo-Lodge is an award-winning journalist and author. She has written for the New York Times, the Voice, Daily Telegraph, Guardian, Independent, Stylist, Inside Housing, the Pool, Dazed and Confused, and the New Humanist.

In 2014, she wrote about her frustration with the way that discussions of race and racism in Britain were being led by those who weren't affected by it. She posted a piece on her blog, entitled “Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race.”

Her words hit a nerve. The post went viral and comments flooded in from others desperate to speak up about their own experiences. Galvanised by this clear hunger for open discussion, she decided to dig into the source of these feelings. What resulted was her now-best-selling book of the same title.

In 2019, Reni’s work earned her a place on Forbes’ European ‘30 Under 30’ list.

Prior to that, in January 2018, British Vogue named her a ‘new suffragette’. And later that year she won a Bold Moves Award from Women in the Creative Industries for the publication of Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race.

In 2015, Reni won a 30 to watch award from MHP Communications. In 2014, the Guardian listed her as one of the 30 most exciting people under 30 in digital media. She has also been listed in Elle Magazine’s 100 Inspirational Women list, and The Root’s 30 black viral voices under 30.

Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race is Reni’s first published -book. It won the 2018 Jhalak Prize, was chosen as Foyles Non-Fiction Book of the Year and Blackwell’s Non-Fiction Book of the Year, was longlisted for the Baillie Gifford Prize and the Orwell Prize and shortlisted for the British Book Awards Non-Fiction Narrative Book of the Year and the Books Are My Bag Readers Award for Non-Fiction.

Speech Topics

In frank and candid moderated interviews, or fireside chats as they’re often known, Reni Eddo-Lodge discusses the many varying subjects covered in her best-selling book, Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race, and examines what it is to be a person of colour in Britain today.

She explores issues from eradicated black history to the political purpose of white dominance, whitewashed feminism to the inextricable link between class and race.
