I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness by Austin Channing Brown



'An example of how one woman can change the world by telling the truth about her life with unflinching, relentless courage' GLENNON DOYLE

Austin Channing Brown's first encounter with racism in America came at age seven, when she discovered her parents named her Austin to deceive future employers into thinking she was a white man. Growing up in majority-white schools and neighbourhoods, Austin 'had to learn what it means to love Blackness,' a journey that led to her becoming a writer, speaker and expert helping organisations practice genuine inclusion. In this bestselling memoir, she writes beautifully and powerfully about her journey to self-worth and how we can all contribute to racial justice.

'A leading new voice on racial justice' LAYLA F SAAD, author of ME AND WHITE SUPREMACY

'Most people say, "that books has legs"; I measure the impact of a book by how often I throw it across the room. [Austin's book] has serious wings. It broke me open' BRENE BROWN

'A deeply personal celebration of blackness that simultaneously sheds new light on racial injustice and inequality while offering hope for a better future' SHONDALAND
