Reni Eddo-Lodge Becomes First Black British Author to top UK Book Charts

Reni Eddo-Lodge has now become the first black British writer to top the Nielsen Book UK chart with her book “Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race”.

Reni Eddo-Lodge is a British journalist and author, whose writing primarily focuses on feminism and exposing structural racism.

The British journalist has responded to the news of her achievement on Twitter, thus “Feels absolutely wild to have broken this record ? My work stands on the shoulders of so many Black British literary giants – Bernadine Evaristo, Benjamin Zephaniah, Zadie Smith, Andrea Levy, Stella Dadzie, Stuart Hall, Linton K Johnson, Jackie Kay, Gary Younge – to name a few”.
