Nels Abbey was inspired to write Think Like a White Man by his direct experience of trying to build a career in white-dominated industries – first in finance and later in the media.
Told through both the voice of Nels and that of the (fictional) distinguished Professor of White People Studies at Bishop Lamonthood University, Dr Boulé Whytelaw III, this bold and satirical guide to conquering the world while being Black is an incisive and timely examination of racism and masculinity today, offering 'advice' on how to be successful in a world that sets you up to fail.
Join Nels live in conversation as he skewers the prejudices of the modern-day British workplace by explaining the rules by which mediocre white men continue to get ahead. This promises to be a brilliantly funny event with a very serious point behind it.
‘Cutting!! This book rewarded me with dark, dry chuckles on every page. I had to laugh, because if I didn't, I would cry.’ RENI EDDO-LODGE
‘I really can’t think of any comedian, satirist, or journalist that has made me laugh out so loud and be so stimulated intellectually at the same time. No messing people, Nels Abbey has written the most original book ever. Amen. What kind of book is this? I don’t know. Just read it and see how difficult it is to put the label on the work of a true mastermind.’ BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH
This event has been curated in partnership with TGRG (The Girl in the Red Glasses) in aid of Black Cultural Archives.
