    A musical journey through Afrofuturism: spoken word and mix tape

    Join Emma for a journey through Afrofuturism, and discover the possibilities the concept offers for shaping alternative futures, and its role in liberating black identities from the limited stereotypes bequeathed to us by others. Emma will bring this cultural movement to life in KIN’s low lit Dark Room through spoken word and playing landmark tracks from its powerful musical history.

    Emma is a teaching fellow in the Africa department at SOAS and a Visual Sociology PhD researcher at Goldsmiths. She has been published in a number of anthologies – alongside such post-colonial heavyweights as Homi Bhabha and Achille Mbembe – academic journals, as well as the national press. A regular BBC face she presented numerous series including  ‘Back in Time Brixton’ (BBC2), ‘Britain’s Lost Masterpieces’ (BBC4), as well as the sociological experiment ‘Is Love Racist?’ (Ch4). Most recently, she hosted Radio 4’s critically-acclaimed documentary ‘Journeys into Afro-futurism’.

    Emma’s debut book Don’t Touch My Hair will be published by Penguin in April 2019.
