Women in the Pan-African movement: Marika Sherwood in conversation with Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa

The first talk in the Women on Aeroplanes public programme focusing upon the critical roles played by women such as Amy Ashwood Garvey, the revolutionary Pan-Africanist whose life and work provides the starting point for Carrying Yours and Standing Between You, Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa’s new installation at The Showrooom.

This event is part of the Women on Aeroplanes public programme which aims to expand upon and collectively develop new knowledge. Writers, researchers, critics and artists will be considering the activism of women - and in particular women of colour - in the struggles for independence from colonial rule in the 20th century.
