Loud Black Girls – Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinené in conversation with Sharna Jackson

Tue. 13 October 2020 at 18:00


Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinené, authors of Slay In Your Lane: The Black Girl Bible, are back with another inspirational book centred on the experiences and successes of Black British women. Tune in to watch Yomi and Elizabeth discuss their newly curated anthology Loud Black Girls, in an online pre-recorded conversation with author and Site Gallery artistic director Sharna Jackson.

For the anthology, the duo invited the next generation of black women in Britain – authors, actors, activists and artists – to explore what it means to them to exist in these turbulent times. From assessing the cultural impact of Marvel's Black Panther to asking how we teach our daughters to own their voices, these timely essays offer fierce, funny and insightful perspectives.

“I so enjoyed stepping inside the minds of these younger women who have so much to say, so much to express, so much to challenge” – Bernardine Evaristo

This event is part of Off the Shelf's Black Women Write Now Strand curated by Désirée Reynolds.
