In an oddly self-fulfilling action, undercover police swoop to snatch a man singing "We all live in a fascist regime" in Soho Square on the day of the Royal Wedding. Welcome to Britain in 2011.

Book: The Sex Lives of African Women

Join Black feminist author Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah to talk about her book ‘The Sex Lives of African Women’ in which she features the stories of more than 30 women giving us rare insights into how they navigate, negotiate and enjoy sex, sexuality and relationships across generations and borders. Among them are monogamous, polyamorous, kinky, queer, transgender and celibate stories.

Nana will be joined by the African feminist writer and editor Rosebell Kagumire – who reviewed the book for openDemocracy. The discussion will be chaired by our 5050 Tracking the Backlash’s East Africa Reporting Fellow, Khatondi Soita Wepukhulu.

Join us on 5 August 2021 at 5pm UK time/12pm EDT for a free, live discussion as we explore this topic with an expert panel
