The New Age of Empire: How Colonialism and Racism Still Rule the World (Prof. Kehinde Andrews)

Going Underground Queen rule

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Professor Kehinde Andrews, author of ‘The New Age of Empire: How Racism and Colonialism Still Rule the World’. He discusses how the Queen and the British royal family are the ‘premier symbol’ of white supremacy, the racist worldview that informed Enlightenment thinking and how it brought genocide and colonialism to the doors of people of colour around the world, their suffering being integral to the Industrial Revolution and the absence of this history from western curricula, and how the same forces of colonialism and racism still dominate the world today.
