The Afrocenchix community love books and often request recommendations. Over the years, we’ve run events and collaborations with publishers and authors... and our community has asked for more!
For Black History Month, the Afrocenchix Book Club session invites three brilliant minds to discuss Windrush and why it's important to write about Black history (and wherever else the conversation takes us, of course).
The panel will include:
🌊 Author and travel blogger, Sarah Lee;
📢 Academic and writer, Hakim Adi;
🧡 Afrocenchix CEO & Founder, Rachael Twumasi-Corson.
We'll have a Q&A, so read the books ahead of time for inspiration:
Black Voices On Britain, ed Hakim Adi (Macmillan), A compelling anthology of Black voices from England, America, Africa and the Caribbean, from people who lived, worked, campaigned and travelled in Britain from the eighteenth to the early twentieth century.
An Ocean Apart, Sarah Lee (Macmillan), inspired by real life stories of the Windrush Generation and her mother’s own experiences as a nurse coming to Britain from the Caribbean, Sarah Lee’s debut novel An Ocean Apart is a must for fans of Call the Midwife.
