P&P Live!: Georgina Lawton — Raceless: In Search of Family, Identity, and the Truth About Where I Belong

Upcoming Event
Friday, February 26, 2021 - 6:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

From The Guardian’s Georgina Lawton, a moving examination of how racial identity is constructed—through the author’s own journey grappling with secrets and stereotypes, having been raised by white parents with no explanation as to why she looked black.

Raceless is an exploration of a fundamental question: what constitutes our sense of self? Drawing on her personal experiences and the stories of others, Lawton grapples with difficult questions about love, shame, grief, and prejudice, and reveals the nuanced and emotional journey of forming one’s identity.

Georgina Lawton is a journalist, speaker, writer, and host of The Secrets in Us podcast. Previously a columnist for The Guardian, she has also written for VICE, Marie Claire, Refinery29, Bustle, The Times (London), Stylist, Time Out London, and other outlets, where she writes about identity, travel, and culture.
