Not quite white

Woozeer, Laila2021
Most of us agree that representation matters - but why? Part autobiography, part critical commentary, 'Not Quite White' unpacks and examines the unique experience of growing up mixed race in the UK. What is it like learning from a mother who is privy to a completely different type of privilege than you? When was the first time you realised your boyfriend was dating you to satisfy some weird fetish? How demoralising was it to find out that Princess Jasmine, your sole claim to Disney royalty, was based on a white model? Part autobiography and part critical commentary, join Laila Woozeer as she blends together stories from her own life, looking specifically at the impact pop culture and media representation has on non-white people and the way they understand themselves, charting a narrative about being mixed race that stems from the 90s until the present day.
