Writer, educational activist and historian Stella Dadzie discusses her book ‘A Kick in the Belly: Women, Slavery & Resistance‘ with Helen Bart, senior producer of ‘Uprising’.
Join Bruce Castle Museum’s special online event with our two distinguished guests (who are both Haringey residents) – writer, education activist and historian Stella Dadzie and Helen Bart, senior television producer. They will be in conversation talking about Stella’s recent book ‘A Kick in the Belly: Women, Slavery & Resistance‘.
Published by Verso, the book explores the legacies of resistance and survival, highlighting the experiences of enslaved women in the Anglo-Caribbean. Stella’s research and focus puts a narrative of empowerment and hope, thus giving a voice for these women’s experiences at the centre of the brutal history of slavery.
Please note this is a free online-only event. Places must be booked.
