AfroHeritage Book Club with Yassmin Abdel-Magied (online)

Thursday August 4, 2022
19:00 - 20:00
  • This event has passed.

AfroHeritage Book Club is a meeting space for Africans in the diaspora (living outside of the African continent).

Here, we connect Africans living in Australia with literature (and other relevant bodies of artwork) created by Africans. By engaging with popular (and less known) literature from the African continent, our members will leave feeling connected to stories of their heritage as we discuss and share what we are getting out of what we are reading.

We want to see the world through African lenses in the hopes of stirring up our creativity in the content we all create in our world. Any poets, writers, musicians, social media content creators will be able to garner inspiration from the literature we read and discuss. Innovative thinkers and dreamers will have a space to engage with others who desire to build our homeland and continue to build Australia as it grows multiculturally.


This month’s book is Talking About a Revolution by Yassmin Abdel-Magied.

Vuma Phiri will be zooming in with Yassmin Abdel-Magied to answer all of your questions on the book.
