about this item

Wogamatter by Esther Lawson is a compelling tale of a small mixed-race girl, growing up in post-war Britain, and her experiences of racism in all its forms from all quarters of society.
A sad story, but one with a real moral at its heart, no reader will fail to be moved by the author's account of her life as a young child and developing teenager.
Wogamatter is recounted through the eyes of a child, allowing the reader to feel keenly the bewilderment and confusion of someone persecuted for the way they look.
The early narrative throws the naive optimism of a young child into sharp contrast with the abject misery she is subjected to.
We are born into the Human Race, however there are no guarantees that you will be accepted; to obtain acceptance is a fight against an automatic classification of colour, rendering you as second class to our counterparts.
No law in nature demanded any difference, we are all one.
