AKALA- Natives

May 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm NZST

$15 – $20

Award-winning hip-hop artist, social entrepreneur and writer Akala discusses his bestselling debut, Natives, a searing modern polemic on race and class in the British Empire. He reflects on growing up poor, mixed-race and politicised in Britain during the 1980s and ’90s, and widens his experiences into a nuanced historical treatise that the Guardian has lauded as ‘the kind of disruptive, aggressive intellect that a new generation is closely watching.’ Introduced by Sacha McMeeking, head of University of Canterbury’s School of Māori and Indigenous Studies.
