The event features a vibrant and illuminating exchange with two brilliant King's alumnae that are defining voices in the African literature landscape. We discuss the notion of Global Africa as engaged by contemporary literature, the place of the Diaspora, the role of (mis)education, fiction and non-fiction, pertinent disciplinary concerns- historical, economic, political, and social, storytelling and Africa's place in the world and the publishing world.
