Political commentator, indefatigable activist and all-round top woman, Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu is a familiar face fighting the anti-racism fight on TV screens, social media and now, um, Tik-Tok. Her book, This Is Why I Resist, is a powerful, passionate polemic against structural racism. In this Chops, she tells Mickey why she had to write it. They also talk about the problem of performative allyship, the insidiousness of structural racism, and why the angry black woman trope is so pernicious.
