2024 Political Writing Book prize finalist

Revolutionary Acts: Love & Brotherhood in Black Gay Britain

Jason Okundaye

Published by: Faber

A sparkling book that is all the more remarkable for being the author’s first. Okundaye is an outstanding guide to what it means to be black and gay in Britain, providing a perspective to the last four decades that is as revelatory as it is important. A marvellous piece of work that makes us think hard about how much we truly know about the country we live in.
