How do Black words matter? To whom should they matter? And aren’t words only part of the story? And what about the power to have those words heard in which spaces?
Shake! will bring creative critique to those questions throwing systems of oppression through media under the spotlight and celebrating modes of communication that transcend them.
Our line-up will include:
Sai Murray: poetry commentary read by Rotimi
Abundance: Sula Collective (a new online magazine set up by POCs from LGBTQI communities) + zines
Wangu Mureithi: poetry
It will be a powerful night with our Numbi Arts fam and their line-up (including Elmi Ali, Mr Gee, Mrsnmelmi, Salwa Osman, Abukar Elmi, Afrikaspoet) alongside Gary Younge.
See you there!
Venue: Rich Mix, London
