Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie in conversation with Reni Eddo-Lodge
27 April 2020
Why have just one best-selling author on your stage when you can have two?
As part of Southbank Centre’s Women of the World 2018, the multi-award-winning writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie joined Reni Eddo-Lodge, author of the acclaimed Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race, at the Royal Festival Hall stage for a very special talk event.
In this fascinating recording of their discussion, the pair explore pressing cultural issues including blogging, social media and discussions on race.
“There’s a sense that, when being asked to talk about race, after you’ve written a book, you’re supposed to have the answers, you’re supposed to have the solution; and while you’re having the solution, you’re supposed to cater for the emotional needs of the people listening to you” – CHIMAMANDA NGOZI ADICHIE
