This event is run by Student Voice
Guardian contributor and BBC race correspondent, Emma Dabiri explores the ways in which black hair has been appropriated and stigmatized throughout history, with ruminations on body politics, race, pop culture, and Dabiri’s own journey to loving her hair.
This Black History Month Book club discussion of Don’t Touch My Hair will be led by Sophie Thompson Hyland, postgraduate student at Keele, who will open the discussion by looking at key passages and themes from the book.
This event is limited capacity, and a free ticket must be purchased to reserve your space. Extracts from the book will be emailed out once a booking has been made.
