Editorial Director of BBC News Kamal Ahmed was born in west London to an English mother and a Sudanese father. His memoir, The Life and Times of a Very British Man, describes what it was like to grow up as part of the first generation of mixed-race children in 1970s Britain in the wake of Enoch Powell’s incendiary “rivers of blood” speech. A candid contribution to the ongoing conversation about race and identity in the UK, it poses the question of whether there is currently cause for optimism.

In conversation with Arifa Akbar, literary journalist and a Guardian theatre critic.
