This week on Women on the Line we chat to Inez Trambas about Negro Speaks of Books.
Negro Speaks of Books is an online platform created to host conversations about books written by authors of Colour. Taking its name from the poem ‘The Negro Speaks of Rivers’ by Langston Hughes, Negro Speaks of Books celebrates the diversity of Bla(c)k literature across the Diaspora, and recognises the necessity of Bla(c)k literature in our struggle for liberation.
We discuss black literature, authors who have made an impact on our readings and also speculate on the future of Australian literature.
