Writing on the Wall is proud to present their most exciting Black History Month programme to date.
Combining such nationally known names as the Guardian Editor-at-Large journalist and broadcaster, Gary Younge and author Kehinde Andrews with the local talent of Amina Atiq, Yemeni-Scouse poet recently featured in the BBC Series Girls on Girls and who received citywide support when she was subjected to racist abuse on a train.
Special guests also include Data Verbaliser Dr. Martin Glynn, members of the gal-dem collective, Rose Thomas,
Liverpool’s first black woman novelist to be published and Liverpool 8’s own, Michelle Charters, Leroy Cooper and Claire Dove.
This year they have major contributions from our partners from the Creative Organisations of Liverpool: First Take, Tmesis Theatre, the Chinese Pagoda and Liverpool Irish Festival.
The programme includes initiatives and events from partners rooted in Liverpool’s diverse communities: Blackburne House, The Kuumba Imani Millennium Centre, The Women’s Organisation and the new, very exciting kids on the block – Blackfest and the Black Girl LitClub.
There are a host of discussions, screenings, author talks, poetry and parties for this truly Liverpool Black History Month celebration, 1 – 31 October.
