From Centerprise Bookshop to Sheba Feminist Press, Hackney has a long history of local people organising to support and promote African and Caribbean writers and narratives.

Hackney Black Women Writers Group formed in Hackney Museum early this year. Join them for the first public showcase of their work created in response to the Roots, Rhythms and Rhymes: The history of African and Caribbean Music in Hackney exhibition with local writer Zena Edwards.

Bring your own short written pieces to share on the night (max 5 mins).
