ON-DEMAND DURING FESTIVAL WEEK

The Sex Lives of African Women

Hosted on YouTube and included in Festival Saturday Pass

Candid discussion by African women about their diverse experiences of sex, sexuality and relationships.

Talking on her debut book of essays and interviews The Sex Lives of African Women, Ghanaian feminist writer and activist Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah shares how, over six years, she spoke to more than 30 Black and Afro-descendant contributors from across Africa and around the world to produce a book described by The Guardian as “a book like none you will have read before”. From confronting the trauma of sexual abuse to challenging religious edicts and societal norms, Sekyiamah’s work is sensitive, honest and moving. Listen to Sekyiamah in-conversation with TLF Lead Programmer and Producer, Marcelle Mateki Akita.

Link to the talk will be sent to ticket holders.

ABOUT THE TOTTENHAM LITERATURE FESTIVAL

The Bernie Grant Arts Centre’s Tottenham Literature Festival returns from Monday 29th November until Sunday 5th December. Our joyous festival of words is bolder and bigger than ever - and this year welcomes the Booker Prize-winning Bernardine Evaristo, the first Black woman ever to win literature’s most prestigious prize.

This year’s festival, which has both in-person and online events, focuses on the theme of Black ‘revolutionary love’ – love of self, love of community, and romantic love – and the power of that love to heal, inspire and transform. Because in a hostile world, the act of loving one another and ourselves can be radical and transformative.

Featuring Bernardine Evaristo, Yomi Sode, Malika Booker, Kareem Parkins-Brown, Janett Plummer, A Quick Ting On authors, Julianknxx, Lola Olufemi, Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah, Sheba Montserrat, Jessica Horn, Laurence Sessou, Alexandrina Hemsley, Veronica Mckenzie, Muti Masafiri, Village 101, Hear Me Out, Miss Jacqui, Theresa Lola, Nick Makoha and others.
