‘Get Out’ Star Daniel Kaluuya: I’m ‘Too Black’ For Britain, ‘Not Black Enough’ For America

Actor Daniel Kaluuya doesn’t think he should have to prove his blackness.

In a new interview with GQ magazine, the “Get Out” star shared his thoughts on Samuel L. Jackson’s recent critique that black British actors may not be able to relate to black Americans. For Kaluuya, Jackson’s comments reflect his personal experiences of being ostracized in different settings for being dark-skinned. 

“When I’m around black people I’m made to feel ‘other’ because I’m dark-skinned,” he said. “I’ve had to wrestle with that, with people going ‘You’re too black.’ Then I come to America and they say, ‘You’re not black enough.’ I go to Uganda, I can’t speak the language. In India, I’m black. In the black community, I’m dark-skinned. In America, I’m British.”

The actor went on to add that similar to black Americans’ vast range of social issues, the London’s black community has confronted oppression, prejudice, and police brutality.

Since Jackson’s much-discussed statements ― which drew criticism from British actor John Boyega ― made headlines last week, Jackson later told the Associated Press that his comments were not necessarily  a “slam” towards the performers, but rather an assessment about how “Hollywood works in an interesting sort of way sometimes.”

Despite Jackson’s commentary, Kaluuya says it’s not his intent to be a “culture vulture “ of the black American experience, but rather focus on telling black stories.

“This is the frustrating thing, in order to prove that I can play this role, I have to open up about the trauma that I’ve experienced as a black person,” he said. “I have to show off my struggle so that people accept that I’m black. No matter that every single room I go to I’m usually the darkest person there…I kind of resent that mentality. I’m just an individual.”

The Women’s Land Army in First World War Britain

The Women’s Land Army in First World War Britain


In England, Scotland, and Wales during the First World War, the Women’s Land Army evolved from a disparate group of training and educational programs into a national effort to organise women for home food production. Between managing the overstated propaganda expectations for women farm workers and combating public fears about the unwomanly activities of Land Girls, oragnisers successfully recruited, trained, and placed thousands of women on British farms and helped feed the nation during the turbulent years of 1917 to 1919.

The People’s Songs: The Story of Modern Britain in 50 Records

The People’s Songs: The Story of Modern Britain in 50 Records


An original book to accompany Stuart Maconie’s landmark Radio 2 series: a history of post-war Britain through pop music. These are the songs that we have listened to, laughed to, loved to and laboured to, as well as downed tools and danced to. Covering the last seven decades, Stuart Maconie looks at the songs that have sound tracked our changing times, and just sometimes – changed the way we feel. Beginning with Vera Lynn’s “We’ll Meet Again,” a song that reassured a nation parted from their loved ones by the turmoil of war, and culminating with the manic energy of “Bonkers,” Dizzee Rascal’s anthem for the push and rush of the 21st century inner city, “The People’s Songs” takes a tour of our island’s pop music, and asks what it means to us. The story of modern Britain is told chronologically over 50 chapters, through the records that we listened to and loved during the dramatic and kaleidoscopic period from the Second World War to the present day. This is not a rock critique about the 50 greatest tracks ever recorded. Rather, it is a celebration of songs that tell us something about how we have felt about things in our lives down the eras – work, war, class, leisure, race, family, drugs, sex, patriotism and more. In times of prosperity or poverty this is the music that inspired haircuts and dance crazes, but also protest and social change. The companion to Stuart Maconie’s landmark Radio 2 series, “The People’s Songs” shows us the power of cheap pop music, one of Britain’s greatest exports.

The Thirties: An Intimate History of Britain

The Thirties: An Intimate History of Britain


Acclaimed author of ‘Wartime’, Juliet Gardiner, brings to life the long neglected decade of the twentieth century – the 1930s. J.B. Priestley famously described the ‘three Englands’ he saw in the 1930s: Old England, nineteenth-century England and the new, post-war England. Thirties Britain was, indeed, a land of contrasts, at once a nation rendered hopeless by the Depression, unemployment and international tensions, yet also a place of complacent suburban home-owners with a baby Austin in every garage. Now Juliet Gardiner, acclaimed author of the award-winning Wartime, provides a fresh perspective on that restless, uncertain, ambitious decade, bringing the complex experience of thirties Britain alive through newspapers, magazines, memoirs, letters and diaries. Gardiner captures the essence of a people part-mesmerised by ‘modernism’ in architecture, art and the proliferation of ‘dream palaces’, by the cult of fitness and fresh air, the obsession with speed, the growth and regimentation of leisure, the democratisation of the countryside, the celebration of elegance, glamour and sensation. Yet, at the same time, this was a nation imbued with a pervasive awareness of loss – of Britain’s influence in the world, of accepted political, social and cultural signposts, and finally of peace itself.
