Reflecting on three decades of his remarkable career as a journalist, Dispatches from the Diaspora is a powerful collection of Gary’s writings on race, racism, and Black life and death.
A vital and richly researched blend of reportage, memoir and polemic, it invites us ringside with Gary during some of the most history-defining events of the last century: Obama’s victory, Hurricane Katrina’s devastation of New Orleans, Nelson Mandela’s first election campaign and more. He talks to Michelle Kambasha about his extraordinary book and his fascinating encounters with Maya Angelou, Stormzy, Bishop Desmond Tutu and more.Buy tickets
