Akala: Natives | Dunedin Writers & Readers Festival
11 May 2019 4:00pm — 5:00pm
Award-winning hip-hop artist, social entrepreneur and writer Akala will talk with Paula Morris about his bestselling debut Natives, a searing, modern polemic on race and class in the British Empire. His memoir reflects on growing up poor, mixed race and politicised in Britain during the 1980s and ’90s and offers a nuanced historical treatise that The Guardian has lauded as “the kind of disruptive, aggressive intellect that a new generation is closely watching”.
