On September 27, join yours truly, along with Tope Folarin, Prof. Carol Boyce Davies, and Hannah Pool at Pace University as we explore the topic of Africa’s literary identity. I am looking forward to joining this distinguished panel of discussants. Should be a great conversation.

I got an invitation to join the panel from my friends (and organizers) at Africare.

Africare, with sponsorship from Chevron, is planning a panel discussion entitled, “Africa’s Literary Identity: Who Defines It?” on September 27th, 2013, to be hosted at Pace University.

Inspired by Maaza Mengiste’s article in the Guardian, “What makes a real African?” Africare looks to a distinguished panel to discuss how the shaping of identity influences the story that is told. Join us for the panel discussion and reception following.

I am very curious at the Chevron sponsorship. You don’t see that very often.
