Opal22 Arts and Edutainment present Negritude, a fresh programme of debating events.

Negritude examines and upholds the genius of literary Icons from African and Caribbean descent, challenging and championing their impact and contribution to the African literary diaspora.

Negritude is a literary movement. In the 1930’s and 1940’s black writers in Paris made the conscious effort for their cultural identities to shine across the Parisian literary scene. The Negritude movement and its champions concerned themselves not only with the written word but the African diaspora’s cultural, economic, social and political values as a whole.

The Opal22 Arts and Edutainment Negritude programme will be a yearly programme to get the community to be enthused about debate, literature and the power of talking, reading and writing about authors from a variety of cultural backgrounds.
