June book of the month: “Don’t Touch My Hair”

Welcome to the fourth in our new monthly feature which will showcase a new book available to borrow from your library service. The books are chosen by our team.

This month we have chosen “Don’t Touch My Hair” by Emma Dabiri. Emma is a presenter, social historian and writer.








See the review below for a taster:

If you’re expecting cookie-cutter discourse on the nature of black people’s hair, look away now. Don’t Touch My Hair might take its title from one of the most well-known (if still frustratingly common) aspects of being black in a predominantly white society, but it will quickly comb away what you thought you knew about our coils and spread out a whole new way of seeing the world around you.”

-Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff, The Guardian

The book is available to borrow now from our RSCH, PRH and MVH libraries. Contact us to reserve your copy.
