Afro-American literature is primarily associated with classics such as James Baldwin and Toni Morrison. But who are the American black writers of today?
Following the example of YO. Brussels Hip-Hop Generations, the BOZAR exhibition based around hip-hop, BOZAR is inviting a number of contemporary Afro-American authors for a literary evening based around the black American body of thought. Themes such as White Supremacy and Black Lives Matter are naturally broached, as are hip-hop, urbanity and feminism.
This evening is the Brussels preview of the Amsterdam literature festival Read My World that is this year based on Black USA.
