The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

In this pre-recorded reading, Olivette Otele traces a long African European heritage through the lives of individuals both ordinary and extraordinary. Uncovering a forgotten past, and exploring a history that has been long overlooked, Olivette sheds light on questions very much alive today – on racism, identity, and citizenship.

Part of Black Women Write Now curated by Désirée Reynolds at Off the Shelf Festival.
