In Black Middle-Class Britannia: Identities, Repertoires, Cultural Consumption
(Manchester University Press, 2019) Ali Meghji
, a lecturer in social inequalities at the University of Cambridge, considers the identity of Britain’s Black middle-class by understanding culture and cultural consumption.
Offering examples from across contemporary art and culture, the book provides both a theoretical framework and rich empirical data to demonstrate the importance of understanding race to the study of both class and culture.
As a result, the book is essential reading across the arts and social sciences, as well as for cultural practitioners and policymakers.
