Anti racism

“In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.” - Angela Y Davis. And for the record, being antiracist is a journey, not a destination.

Please consider supporting some of the UK’s brilliant black owned bookshops - New Beacon Books in London, or Book Love & Round Table books, which have astounding & inclusive children’s selections. Buy from Black owned & black led presses like Jacaranda Books, Knights Of, Cassava Republic and Dialogue Books. Support gal-dem & other black media to help make sure our narratives are not forever dominated by whiteness. Subscribe!

We are immensely grateful for the support Lighthouse has had and are committed to putting what we can of profits back into supporting black writers and creatives, especially in Scotland. Thanks for coming to us, thanks for supporting BAME writers through us, we hope their words will provoke, enlighten, educate and inspire you.

A few initiatives we’d encourage you all to support direct include the Fringe of Colour & The Free Black University two phenomenal black, queer led initiatives. Look out for the Scottish BAME Writers Network too, they are nurturing and championing Black, brown and ethnic minority writers in Scotland!\ \ Here is a link tree by DemandsFromAPandemic, which we found rounded up a lot of terrific UK specific info : CLICK HERE.

Please remember we’re a small indie operating on a skeleton staff against the backdrop of a pandemic (which slows down our whole distribution network!) so your orders may take a couple of weeks to arrive- thanks so much for your patience and support!
