The Hate Race

10th February 2017


The Hate Race

Maxine Beneba Clarke’s memoir “The Hate Race” is a powerful memoir about growing up black in suburban Australia.  It is a memoir of a childhood that is wholly familiar – that of backyards, sweltering summers, push bikes and Cabbage Patch dolls – but one that is punctuated by breathtaking instances of unchecked, unfiltered and sometimes casual racism.
Shorlisted for the 2017 Indie Book Awards in the Non-Fiction category – this is a powerful and prescient reminder to all of us that racism still remains unchecked in contemporary Australian culture.  Give this to everyone you know.
