AFROPEAN: NOTES FROM BLACK EUROPE
“Afropean seizes the blur of contradictions that have obscured Europe’s relationship with blackness and paints it into something new, confident and lyrical” – Afua Hirsch
We kick off our July Hub Talks programme with award-winning writer and photographer Johny Pitts and his new book Afropean: Notes from Black Europe.
In Afropean, Johny Pitts sets out to explore the state of black culture and identity in Europe today. His lively, on-the-ground reporting documents the experiences of different communities, with Pitts travelling from his hometown of Sheffield to a Cape Verdean favela in Lisbon, an anti-Fascist demonstration in Berlin and the former Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow.
