About this item

The 'R' Word explores a changing country in a changing world, and our relationship with notions of race and racism, examining a paradox at the heart of anti-racism. By adopting the language of the oppressor to liberate the oppressed, are we paralyzing ourselves with the language inherited from raciology, race and racism? Is it yet possible to step out of our skins and leave the color behind?

Kurt Barling is Professor of Journalism at Middlesex University in London. He was a leading broadcaster for the BBC for twenty-five years, has made dozens of prime-time documentaries and won numerous industry awards for his journalism, film-making and writing.
