Southbank Centre: Bestselling author of “I Am Not Your Baby Mother” Candice Brathwaite: Sista Sister essays for Black girls

The author of the bestselling I Am Not Your Baby Mother introduces her new book of essays, written in her trademark straight-talking, warm and funny style.

Candice Brathwaite, author, journalist, presenter and founder of Make Motherhood Diverse, joins us to celebrate the publication of her highly anticipated new book, Sista Sister.

Examining family, money, Black hair, fashion, sex and friendships, Sista Sister is a compilation of essays about all the things Brathwaite wishes someone had talked to her about when she needed guidance as a young Black girl growing up in London.

Brathwaite’s first book, Sunday Times top five bestseller I Am Not Your Baby Mother, was a landmark publication in 2020.

It’s a thought-provoking, urgent and inspirational guide to life as a Black British mum, and a call-to-arms for mothers to take control and do it their own way, scrapping the parenting rulebook.
