Mara Menzies

Sunday 10th October 17:00 - 17:45 | Digital

Enter the world of blood and gold, and let performance storyteller Mara Menzies take you on a journey of tragedy, wonder and magic. Listen and watch as she explores African ancestry through tales of slavery, cruelty and colonisation, unearthing pride, love and sacrifice along the way. Her book, Blood and Gold explores the themes of loss and oppression, while asking us to examine our own identities, attitudes, and humanity.

Mara will be in conversation with Amber Beard. Together they will discuss her novel and Mara will perform stories from the book.
