A talk to mark Black History Month

As part of Black History Month, the Faculty of Humanities is joining forces with the Diverse Arts and Artists Communities Association (DAACA) and Southampton City Council for a series of talks by black women in literature and broadcasting. On Thursday 13th October, the screenwriter and broadcaster Ade Solanke will be in conversation with Godfrey Brandt, director of DAACA, drawing on various aspects of her career including her project Reelworks, which uses film to help students improve their literacy skills. On Thursday 27th October, the broadcaster and writer Delia Jarrett-Macauley will be in conversation with Will May. Her work includes a biography of Una Marson and the novel 'Moses, Citizen & Me', a imaginative response to the conflict in Sierra Leone which won the Orwell Prize for political writing in 2005.

Both events are free, and will begin with a wine reception at 6pm.
