Why African Literature Matters
Saturday 30 June, British Library
12:00 – 13:30 FREE
With Farrah Serroukh, Deirdre Osborne, JC Niala, Zaahida Nabagereka and Joanna Brown.
Following the Africa Writes Young Voices showcase, we are hosting an education round-table event, to explore the question ‘Where is Africa in the UK literature curriculum?’. We know that there are gaps in representation in the UK literature curriculum, and we know how those gaps disadvantage our children. This event brings together educational professionals bringing African literature into the classroom in innovative and exciting ways and offers the opportunity to share good practice and ideas about how we can move things forward.
