Kenan Malik & Hans Kundnani: Racism and Anti-Racism

Sorry, this event has sold out

What does it mean to be anti-racist in contemporary times? Is racism largely a function of whiteness, and can anti-racism build itself around multiculturalism, cosmopolitanism and identity politics? How can a historical perspective illuminate our understanding of both racism and the struggle against it – and is ‘Europe’ part of the problem or solution?

Kenan Malik is the author of Not So Black and White and Strange Fruit. Hans Kundnani is the author of Eurowhiteness and Utopia or Auschwitz.

Folkestone Book Festival is our annual celebration of books, ideas, reading and writing in its many magical forms. This year's festival has been curated by Jen Thatcher and James Harkin. Curating the festival for the first time, Jen and James have been inspired by Folkestone and how we can all come together through inspired discussion about global ideas, global thinking and possible futures.


This year's festival is for everyone and we want to make it possible for more people than ever before to be able to come together and enjoy a packed festival. To make this possible we have introduced a £5 ticket. This is a no questions asked ticket for those that may be struggling to afford events and performances.


We would like to thank our Principal Sponsor Saga, our Education Partner Canterbury Christ Church University, Le Shuttle and our Travel Partner, Southeastern. Creative Folkestone is also supported by Arts Council England, Folkestone and Hythe District Council, Kent County Council and The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust.
