About this Event
To launch the yearlong Formations programme, delivered in partnership with Nottingham Trent University’s Centre for Postcolonial Studies, we are pleased to announce the first of our October events, under the thematic banner – Formation: History, Critical Responses to Black History Month.
Join us for an interview with Sharon Monteith, Distinguished Professor of American Literature and Cultural History at NTU, as she tells us more about SNCC’s Stories: The African American Freedom Movement in the Civil Rights South (University of Georgia Press, October 2020).
The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee would have commemorated 60 years since its founding in 2020 in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. This book coincides with that anniversary and uncovers the organization’s narrative culture and activist literary history. Join Sharon Monteith in conversation about SNCC and her book with Panya Banjoko, poet, director of Nottingham Black Archive, and NTU doctoral researcher.
