This amazing book was written by #BAHD Mama - Uju Asika - my wife and my hero! I'm bursting with pride about what she has created and the good that reading it will do to those that buy it and to their families, friends and the people they all meet in a kinder future world.
The #BAHD Man - July 2021.
"Timely and important, Uju Asika's Bringing Up Race is imperative reading for all expectant, new and old-timer parents. Filled with personal stories, expert advice and advice from fellow parents, Bringing Up Race is a call to arms for all parents to start the conversation and raise the most inclusive generation yet." London Evening Standard
Bringing Up Race is an important book, for all families whatever their race or ethnicity. Racism cuts across all sectors of society – even the Queen will have to grapple with these issues, as great grandmother to a child of mixed ethnicity.
Bringing Up Race us a book for everyone who wants to instil a sense of open-minded inclusivity in their kids, and those who want to discuss difference instead of shying away from tough questions. Uju draws on often shocking personal stories of prejudice along with opinions of experts, influencers and fellow parents to give prescriptive advice making this an invaluable guide.
"This book could not be more timely. With so many scrabbling around for resources to help navigate our racialized times, Asika draws upon her own experience as a Black Nigerian mother of two boys to offer parents, teachers, carers, educators these stories for survival." Sai Murray, trustee of The Racial Justice Network
