Black Feminist Killjoy Reading July

Our last reading group for this term was dedicated to re-membering and playing children games, sharing different ways how to play elastics, jump-roe, hand-clapping, counting-out-rhymes, musical chairs and other games, culminating in an exciting 30-seconds match. It was amazing to see how much is shared across languages, regions and generations when re-membering games and rhymes collecively.

We’ll meet again in July to read the first novel by Senegale author Mariama Bâ, So Long A Letter (original title “Une si longue lettre”, download it here) which won the first Noma Award for Publishing in Africa. By the way, the whole of the African Writer Series can be accessed here using your university library user details.
