Afua Hirsch Joins Adwoa Aboah in the Latest Episode of the 'Gurls Talk' Podcast

Furthering the conversation about racism, white privilege and how it functions in modern British society.

Adwoa Aboah‘s community Gurls Talk has just released its latest episode of the Gurls Talk Podcast, this time tapping esteemed writer, broadcaster and creative Afua Hirsch. In the episode, Adwoa and Afua explore systemic racism, and speak to their experiences growing up Black in predominantly White spaces, as well as the importance of both individual and collective anti-racist work. Furthering the conversation about racism, white privilege and how it functions in society, the two discuss the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement, as well as their hopes for the future.

“If you haven’t done work to be anti-racist, you’re going to be racist,” said Afua, adding that, “That is a fact. Everything in our society has been designed to make you racist.” When discussing BLM, Adwoa states, “This feels in many ways revolutionary, with the way black people are speaking and coming forth about what’s happening in their lives, what they’ve seen, what they’ve endured. The new generation are sick and tired of having to repeat these conversations, and they’re educating themselves.”

The Gurls Talk Podcast engages with leaders, activists and change-makers, and season two has seen Adwoa Aboah in conversation with Dua Lipa, Lucy Sheridan, Clara Amfo, Megan Barton-Hanson and more. Listen to the latest episode with Afua Hirsch here, and for more resources, Gurls Talk has shared a list of educational tools here.
