In Febuary 2020 we gathered for an evening of readings and discussion about Africa and it’s relationship and influence on writers across the diaspora as a place and culture. Panellists discussed notions of Bla(c)kness in Australia and and the diverse, complex experiences of African migrants and Afro-descendant peoples.
This panel was curated and led by actor, writer and activist Moreblesing Maturure and featured Kaiya Aboagye, Eugen Bacon and Tyree Barnette.
As this panel was a live event in a relaxed, intimate setting, we didn’t use microphones and subsequently the recording is not of the highest quality. We hope you’ll bear with the background noise, as the exciting conversation is worth it!
