About the Event

Tsitsi Dangarembga launches her new essay collection, Black and Female, with writer Irenosen Okojie in an event run in partnership with English PEN.

This paradigm shifting collection weaves the personal and political in an illuminating exploration of the acclaimed novelist’s complex relationship with race and gender.

At once philosophical, intimate and urgent, Dangarembga’s landmark essays address the profound cultural and political questions that underpin her novels for the first time.

From her experience of life with a foster family in Dover and the difficulty of finding a publisher as a young Zimbabwean novelist, to the ways in which colonialism continues to disrupt the lives and minds of those subjugated by empire, Dangarembga writes to recentre marginalised voices.

Black and Female (Faber & Faber) offers a powerful vision toward ‚Äėre-membering‚Äô, to use Toni Morrison‚Äôs word, those whose identities and experiences continue to be fractured by the intersections of history, race and gender.

Presented in partnership with English PEN
