Sydney Writers Festival: Growing Up African in Australia

  • carriageworks Sydney Australia (map)

While our politicians continue to use members of the African diaspora as political footballs, the Growing Up African in Australia anthology tells us what it’s really like. Its editor, award-winning author Maxine Beneba Clarke, talks to contributors Effie Nkrumah, Sefakor Aku Zikpi and Santilla Chingaipe about their diverse, humorous and hopeful stories of family, identity and belonging that paint portraits of lives lived beyond the headlines
