Overview

Talking Ideas: Akala: Natives, Race And Class In The Ruins Of The Empire

Join award-winning hip-hop artist, social entrepreneur and writer Akala as he delivers a talk about his bestselling debut, 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.’

Read some of Akala’s Guardian articles here and watch this video.

The Library Shop will have a selection of Akala’s books available for sale at the event and you are invited to meet him post-event to have your book signed. 

MAKE A NIGHT OF IT

Come early and enjoy free live music and poetry with Voices of Colour at the Library Café Bar. Beer, wine and hot snacks available for purchase.
