Books about racism in the UK

I’m trying to get better informed about racism in the UK, so I asked my Twitter friends for some book recommendations. Updated on 13 June 2020.

Currently reading “Why I’m no longer talking to white people about race” by @renireni. What should I read next? I want to educate myself about racism in the UK.
