Black (Zimbabwean) Literary Imaginaries

Wednesday 28 October 3 – 5pm Online talk

An online discussion with celebrated Zimbabwean writer Tendai Huchu


From Zimbabwean author to Zimbabwean-born author…

Critically acclaimed Zimbabwean author, Tendai Huchu will lead a discussion giving a glimpse into Zimbabwean transnational identity to texturise the celebration of diverse Black identities during Black History Month. Tendai will read an excerpt from his back-catalogue, a book entitled, “The Hairdresser of Harare” to set the tone of the discussion.

The talk stands in solidarity with the Zimbabwe’s localised #BlackLivesMatter movement: #ZimbabweanLivesMatter. Tendai has transitioned from Zimbabwean literature to Scottish fantasy, and lives in Edinburgh. He will discuss his evolutionary journey as an author.

Booking is required for this online event.
