Dates and times

4 Nov 2020 7pm - 8pm

Online Event

Join Khadijah Ibrahiim and Emily Zobel Marshall as they explore the value of letter-writing in passing on family history and cultural traditions.

Letters have been used to connect African-Caribbean families and friends for generations. Letters pass on joy, grief, opinions, advice and instructions. They document lives.

Letters from a Generation Dreaming follows on from our sell-out Windrush Day event, Generations Dreaming. It will feature extracts from the musical Sorrel & Black Cake, discussion around the significance of letters and a live musical performance. 

We would like members of the African-Caribbean diaspora to share the letters in their life with us, so we can include them in this event. Visit this page to get involved!

This is an online event and will take place on Zoom
