Black History Month; African Women, Food & Power by Betty Vandy

Friday 22 October 2021

Join Betty as she explores the dynamic arena of African women, food and power in Africa and across the diaspora.


Land ownership, farming and the politics of food and who is truly representing it will be at the heart of this discussion. Are women across other cultures affected in the same way?

Come and be part of this important discussion.
