Akala: Natives

Akala: Natives

Sunday 12 May 2019, 6:00pm—7:00pm

Award-winning hip-hop artist, social entrepreneur and writer Akala discusses his bestselling debut book, Natives, a searing modern polemic on race and class in the British Empire. He reflects on growing up poor, mixed-race and politicised in Britain during the 1980s and ’90s, and widens his experiences into a nuanced historical treatise that the Guardian has lauded as ‘the kind of disruptive, aggressive intellect that a new generation is closely watching.’

Restriction: none
