Maybe I Don't Belong Here

David Harewood

Overview

Many well-meaning people claim that they 'don't even see race'. But for people of color, it is impossible to live without being constantly reminded of it. The institutionalised racism that people of color have to navigate has a direct negative effect on their mental health.

David Harewood is a world-famous actor who, despite his struggles with psychosis, has performed in a series of internationally acclaimed productions. In this book, Harewood vividly documents his experiences with racism through his early childhood and into adult life. Maybe I Don't Belong Here is not only a personal record of Harewood's career as an actor, but a journey to examine how racism is embedded in the country's institutions, including health services, and how it affects the lives of people of color.

Favorite Quote

"As a Black British man I believe it is vital that I tell this story. It may be just a single account from one person of colour, but my hope is that it might be enough to change some opinions or, more importantly, stop someone else from spinning completely out of control."
