Writer Afua Hirsch and ex-footballer Eniola Aluko discuss the need to teach a complete history of the British Empire.

In this excerpt from Studio B: Unscripted, writer and broadcaster Afua Hirsch and lawyer and former footballer Eniola Aluko reflect on their experiences finding an identity and overcoming their so-called “impostor syndromes”.

Hirsch shares her views on the need for British institutions to come to terms with the country’s history of Empire.

Her first book, Brit(ish): On Race, Identity and Belonging, explores the legacy of imperialism, her identity as a British-Ghanaian and how she has tackled the subjects of race, class and gender along her journey.

The views expressed in this programme are the guests’ own and do not necessarily reflect Al Jazeera’s editorial stance.
