Think Like A White Man Book Launch

We're excited to welcome Nels Abbey, the author of the highly anticipated, Think Like A White Man, to Black Cultural Archives. Nels will be in conversation with Dr Nicola Rollock, an academic, consultant and public speaker specialising in racial justice in education and the workplace.

A self-help book with a massive difference, Think Like A White Man is the first of its kind. By cleverly combining wit with wisdom and funny with fact, it highlights the daily battles black people face both the corporate world and the rest of the world. The book exposes the prejudices of the modern workplace and shares the survival techniques required if you want to play the game (and potentially) win against the master of the universe: the mediocre White Man

Writer Nels Abbey pens the unpopular opinions and unwelcome advice of the (fictional) distinguished Professor of White People Studies, Dr Boulé Whytelaw III, in this telling tale and brilliantly funny book.
