Shortlisted for the Victorian Premier's Literary Award for Non-Fiction Shortlisted for the Stella Prize 2017 'Against anything I had ever been told was possible, I was turning white. On the surface of my skin, a miracle was quietly brewing . . .' Suburban Australia. Sweltering heat. Three bedroom blonde-brick. Family of five. Beat-up Ford Falcon. Vegemite on toast. Maxine Beneba Clarke's life is just like all the other Aussie kids on her street. Except for this one, glaring, inescapably obvious thing. From one of Australia's most exciting writers, and the author of the multi-award-winning FOREIGN SOIL, comes THE HATE RACE: a powerful, funny, and at times devastating memoir about growing up black in white middle-class Australia.

إنه أشبه بمشهد أوبرالي مهيب يحف به حرس من فرقة أكلة لحم البقر، مصطفا على جانبي السلالم المؤدية إلى القاعة، وحرس آخرون اعتمروا خوذاتهم في مؤخرة القاعة. ويحضر رئيس مجلس اللوردات، اللورد ماكاي صاحب كلاشفيرن Clashfern of Mackay Lord بزيه الرسمي. ويمشي مرتعشا إلى أسفل السلم يظهر نلسون مانديلا بقامته الطويلة النحيلة الكبير، ممسكا بيد رئيسة مجلس العموم بيتي بوثرويد. Boothroyd Betty. التي قالت فيما بعد؛ إنها دقائق خمس، كانت أعظم ما انطبع في ذاكرتها مدى حياتها. وهذا نبيل من حزب العمال كان يجلس أمامي، وقد أذن لدمعه أن ينسكب على خديه. وعزفت جوقة الحرس (من سلاح المشاة) موسيقى انكوسي سيكليلإأفريكاء 'iAfrika Sikelel Nkosi، وهي ترتيلة أنشدها الثوار السود في جنوب إفريقية لعشرات السنين. ويلقي رئيس مجلس اللوردات كلمة متواضعة، مستذكرا كيف شهدن هذه القاعة تطور الديمقراطية البطيء منذ الوثيقة العظمى Carta Magna سنة 1215، كيف شارك أبناء ورعايا بريطانيون وجنوب إفريقيون الحق الديمقراطي بالإدلاء بأصواتهم في الانتخابات على حد سواء، صوت واحد لكل منهم. ثم يقدم بحرارة الثائر السابق، الذي يبدو الآن كأنه سيد إنكليزي كريم من الطراز القديم. ويتحدث مانديلا بتؤدة، وبنبرته المؤدبة المعتادة. ورغم أن معظم الحضور لا يستطيعون سماعه بسبب تردد الصدى، فقد كان خطابا قاسيا لا يعجب الليدي تاتشر Thatcher Lady، كما تصرح فيما بعد. فهو ينظر إلى مئتي سنة خلت؛ إلى الوقت الذي استعمرت فيه بريطانيا أولا جنوب إفريقية واستولت على أرض أجداده. وذكر المستمعين كيف تقدم حزب مؤتمر جنوب إفريقية منذ ثمانين سنة بعريضة إلى مجلس العموم البريطاني، يحتج فيها على فرقة اكلة لحم البقر BccfeaIcrs، فرقة من فرق الحرم الملكي البريطاني .

إذا وجِدَ كتاب يستحق أن يقرأه المراهقون وأولياء الأمور (وأي شخص آخر)، فهو هذا الكتاب - صحيفة دنفر بوست. ميلودي، 11 عامًا، تملك ذاكرة مرآتية، ورأسها مثل آلة تصوير سينمائية تسجل طوال الوقت، ولكن لا يوجد فيها زر للحذف؛ كانت أذكى طفلة في مدرستها، ولكن لم يكن أي إنسان يعرف ذلك؛ فقد اعتقد معظم الناس، ومنهم المعلمون والأطباء، أنها غير قادرة على التعلُّم، وكانت أيام المدرسة - حتى وقت قريب - تمر وهي تستمع باستمرار إلى دروس أحرف الهجاء لمستوى الروضة مرة تلو الأخرى؛ تمنَّت لو أنها تستطيع الصراخ... لو أنها تستطيع إخبار من حولها كيف تفكر، وماذا تعرف؛ لكنها لا تستطيع؛ لأنها لا تقدر على الكلام، ولا تستطيع المشي ولا الكتابة. كانت أشياء كثيرة حبيسة في رأسها ولا تستطيع التعبير عنها، وهذا ما كان يسبب لها الجنون - إلى أن اكتشفت شيئًا جعلها تتكلم لأول مرة في حياتها؛ أخيرًا، أصبح لها صوت، لكن لا يوجد أحد ممن حولها يريد سماعه! العبيكان 2017

Little one, when we say Black Lives Matter, we're saying black people are wonderful-strong. That we deserve to be treated with basic respect, and that history's done us wrong. From birth to the end of school, in joy and in sorrow, on the trumpet and the djembe, at home and in the community, a black child's parents remind him why Black Lives Matter. A gorgeous and essential picture book for children of all ages from bestselling and award-winning author Maxine Beneba Clarke. In When We Say Black Lives Matter, a black child's parents explain what the term Black Lives Matter means to them: in protest and song, in joy and in sorrow. I see this picture book as an act of Black Love - I was inspired to write and create it when thinking about how to explain the concept of Black Lives Matter to the young African diaspora kids in my extended family, living in over eight different countries across the world - including America, Australia, Germany, Barbados and England. - Maxine Beneba Clarke, on writing WHEN WE SAY BLACK LIVES MATTER A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

I was born in Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe. My dad was a freedom fighter, waging war for an independent state: South Sudan. We lived in a small country town, in the deep south of Western Australia. I never knew black people could be Muslim until I met my North African friends. My mum and my dad courted illegally under the Apartheid regime. My first impression of Australia was a housing commission in the north of Tasmania. Somalis use this term, “Dhaqan Celis”. “Dhaqan” means culture and “Celis” means return. Learning to kick a football in a suburban schoolyard. Finding your feet as a young black dancer. Discovering your grandfather’s poetry. Meeting Nelson Mandela at your local church. Facing racism from those who should protect you. Dreading a visit to the hairdresser. House- hopping across the suburbs. Being too black. Not being black enough. Singing to find your soul, and then losing yourself again. Welcome to African Australia. Compiled by award-winning author Maxine Beneba Clarke, with curatorial assistance from writers Ahmed Yussuf and Magan Magan, this anthology brings together voices from the regions of Africa and the African diaspora, including the Caribbean and the Americas. Told with passion, power and poise, these are the stories of African-diaspora Australians. Contributors include Faustina Agolley, Santilla Chingaipe, Carly Findlay, Khalid Warsame, Nyadol Nyuon, Tariro Mavondo and many, many more. ‘A deeply moving and unforgettable read – there is something to learn from each page. FOUR AND A HALF STARS’ —Books+Publishing ‘A complex tapestry of stories specific in every thread and illuminating as a whole ... The wonderful strength of this anthology lies in the easily understood and the never imagined.’ —Readings ‘In the face of structural barriers to health care, education, housing and employment, the narratives in Growing Up African are tempered with stories of deep courage, hope, resilience and endurance.’ —The Conversation ‘Growing Up African in Australia is almost painfully timely. It speaks to the richness of a diaspora that is all too often deprived of its nuances ... Lively, moving, and often deeply affecting, it is an absolute must-read. FOUR AND A HALF STARS’ —The AU Review
