Our first publication developed through the Black Sister Network: Inside the Ivory Tower: Narratives of Women of Colour Surviving and Thriving in British Academia, continues to have far-reaching impact on its readers, as this recent feedback shows:
“I just wanted to take this opportunity to contact you all collectively and let you know how extremely grateful I am that you wrote and published the book ‘Inside The Ivory Tower: Narratives of women of colour surviving and thriving in British academia’. I’ve read the book from cover to cover and it is more than excellent; it’s revolutionary! It’s a book that I will constantly refer to for guidance and assurance.
Your book has enabled me to better understand the personal and professional experiences of Black British women academics as well as my own challenges, both past and current that I have experienced as a Black (male) academic at this institution; words cannot express!
I was introduced to your book by a friend as I am currently carrying out a research project that will investigate the racial inequalities experienced by Black British fashion students, graduates and designers backgrounds and your book has provided excellent reference points for this.
I thank you all so much for sharing your experiences with the world.”
