Tsitsi Dangarembga, Dipo Faloyin & Howard W French: Africa’s Rich Diversity image

We welcome three exceptionally perceptive writers radically reshaping our understanding of the African continent. Tsitsi Dangarembga explores the intersections of her identities in Black and Female.
Dipo Faloyin paints a vivid picture of modern Africa as he homes in on distinct cultures in Africa is Not a Country.
And Howard W French’s Born in Blackness walks through 600 years of history, retrieving the lives of major African figures erased from the record books. Their unmissable conversation is chaired by Olivette Otele.
