It was an honour to be featured on Gretchen Rubin’s blog on the North American release of Bringing Up Race. I’ve been a fan of hers for years.
Gretchen writes: “Uju Asika is the founder and voice of the popular, award-winning family, lifestyle, and travel blog Babes About Town. It’s a guide for families who want to have fun together in London—and beyond.
Now she has a book that just hit the shelves: Bringing Up Race: How to Raise a Kind Child in a Prejudiced World (Amazon, Bookshop). In it, she blends personal stories and research to explore how race impacts us from birth and what we can do to build fairer, anti-racist societies.
I couldn’t wait to talk to Uju about happiness, habits, and parenting.”
