Gary Younge

Thursday, November 2

Join award-winning author, broadcaster and former US correspondent, columnist and editor-at-large at The Guardian, Gary Younge at the Barbican Theatre, Plymouth to hear him speak about his recent book, Dispatches from the Diaspora.

Dispatches from the Diaspora: From Nelson Mandela to Black Lives Matter For the last three decades Gary Younge has had a ringside seat during the biggest events and with the most significant personalities to impact the black diaspora: accompanying Nelson Mandela on his first election campaign, joining revellers on the southside of Chicago during Obama’s victory, entering New Orleans days after hurricane Katrina or interviewing Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Maya Angelou and Stormzy.

Gary has witnessed how much change is possible, the power of systems to thwart those aspirations, and compels you to ‘imagine a world in which you might thrive, for which there is no evidence. And then fight for it.’

This event is hosted by Zebra Collective. £7. (inclusive of any booking fees and charges)
