An important treatise . . . there is wisdom to be garnered from the accounts contained within Biracial Britain
Buzz magazine
Absorbing . . . refreshingly open-minded . . . [Adekoya is] an exceptionally good listener with an ear for nuance and complexity. If there are tales of emotional suffering, the book strikes a positive note too . . . this book is helping to broaden the conversation
Saturday Review, The Times
A ground-breaking book . . . Interspersed with Adekoya's engaging reflections of his own upbringing, crucially, Adekoya seeks to argue that being mixed race is a unique identity in and of itself
Cosmopolitan
A bracing polemic
i news
A valuable new addition to discussions on race
Black Business Guide
. . . turning assumptions upside down. Largely composed of a mixed-race person sharing, in uninterrupted text, their experiences of growing up in Britain . . . followed by a shorter commentary by Adekoya - offering a more conceptual angle to these personal experiences . . . The effect of this structure is revelatory: many of the assumptions about what it means to be mixed-race are shown to bear only a superficial resemblance to reality
Evening Standard
The publishing world had already begun to reflect a growing appetite for writing on race and racism, and in 2021 the theme is developed and deepened
New Statesman
Barack Obama had a special talent for making different kinds of people feel comfortable around him because of his biracial life experience, says Adekoya. By the same token, Adekoya himself seems poised to become one of the most important and subtle new voices in Britain's never-ending conversation about race
David Goodhart, Unherd
Wealth of thought-provoking experiences . . . firmly putting biracial Britain on the map
