Emma Dabiri is an Irish-Nigerian broadcaster, historian and bestselling author.

Emma's Channel 4 documentary Hair Power: Me and My Afro asked how it is that hair became one of the most misunderstood, celebrated and debated aspects of the black experience. It went on to win a Cannes Lion Silver award in the Entertainment Category.

Emma’s presenting credits also include: Britain’s Lost Masterpieces, Virtually History, Back in Time for Brixton, Is Love Racist? and The One Show. She's appeared on Newsnight, Have I Got News for You, Question Time, Jeremy Vine, Portrait Artist of the Year and Book Tube.

On radio she has hosted BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Review and Front Row. Emma has authored a landmark Radio 4 documentary, Journeys in Afrofuturism as well as EXPOSED: Young Female Photographers.

Emma's latest book 'Disobedient Bodies: Reclaim Your Unruly Beauty', has been praised as “an incisive, radical essay offering empowering alternatives to the pressures of pervasive beauty standards”. In April 2021 Emma released ‘What White People Can Do Next: From Allyship to Coalition’ which was an immediate Times and Sunday Times bestseller. WWPCDN is a clever deconstruction of the mainstream conversation around anti-racism. It followed on from her debut work ‘Don’t Touch My Hair’ which was an Irish Times Bestseller. DTMH also inspired a national conversation about race and hair and has led to changing regulations in schools and in the British army.
