"Policies a stone’s throw from the left-of-centre are now considered revolutionary."

Kimberly McIntosh is a writer and senior researcher at the Child Poverty Action Group. She was previously the senior policy officer at the Runnymede Trust, the UK's leading race equality think tank. Her research is at the forefront of racial and postcolonial politics and seeks to uncover how our imperial past still impacts people of colour today.

In addition to her recent book, black girl, no magic: essays and reflections on living whilst black, she has written lifestyle and opinion pieces for a range of publications including The Guardian, The Washington Post, and The Independent, and also penned a love and dating column for gal-dem, a unique publication highlighting the stories of women and non-binary people of colour.
