Dispatches from the Diaspora : Gary Younge in conversation with Shami Chakrabati

Admission £16
Start Time 20:00
End Time 22:00

Join acclaimed journalist and author Gary Younge on a journey through the black diaspora, in his latest book, Dispatches from the Diaspora from Nelson Mandela to Black Lives Matter.

In conversation with human rights activist and barrister, Shami Chakrabarti, Gary will share his first-hand experiences and observations on race, racism, and black life and death across the globe – from Africa and the Caribbean to Europe and the United States.

Dispatches from the Diaspora has received critical acclaim and is a testament to Gary Younge’s timeless and vital storytelling. According to Afua Hirsch, ‘No single journalist has done more to shape my understanding of black diaspora’s experiences in the world today.’

Don’t miss out on the chance to hear from this award-winning author, broadcaster, and professor of sociology at the University of Manchester, as he shares his perspective on the black diaspora with Shami Chakrabarti, a human rights activist, barrister, and author of two books, On Liberty and Of Women, and is a frequent commentator on human rights issues in the media.
