Look forward to seeing you.

Dear Black Feminist Killjoy Reading Group,
Thanks to all of you for reading, sharing your thoughts, laughing and dancing with us over this year. Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
Our first reading for next year will be Tsitsi Dangarembga’s novel Nervous Conditions. Here’s a link to the pdf if you want to read it over the holidays.
Also, there’s a new series of interviews with African Feminists (including Pumla Dineo Gqola, Amina Mama and Yewande Omotso) on the Youtube channel of the African Feminist Forum.
Wishing you all the best with exams and the end of year holidays. See you in 2018.
In our next meeting we will engage in creative writing, movement and performative exercises, as a way to practice creative theorisation.
