Reni Eddo-Lodge wins Jhalak prize for British writers of colour

Reni Eddo-Lodge.

The British writer, with Nigerian roots, has won an important literary prize. It is the Jhalak Prize for her book Why I’m no longer talking to white people about race.  In this book she talks about issues of race and the way people of whiteness react to that. The prize is for a writer of colour. As white and black are no colours (but absence of colour), that excludes writers with a black or a white skin. I hope I am correct. Well, have a look at this article.
