BLACK: The Literary Salon is an event series committed to building community around Black writing culture where everyone can come and listen to some of the most creative, inventive and engaging writers and thinkers working today. Each salon will be filmed and recorded to provide accessibility to all.
BLACK is a celebration of the best in Black writing from across the world. Shifting the focus away from tokenistic representation, Black writing and writers will take centre stage providing a platform from where they can probe more deeply into selected themes in a critical, joyous and fun way that both delight and stretch our minds.
Established by the first African publishing house in the UK, Cassava Republic Press, and in collaboration with A+F Creative. The 2020 events are held at the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, London.
