Waterstones Birmingham are very excited to invite you to an evening with Lesley-Ann Brown discussing her new book, Decolonial Daughter: Letters From a Black Woman to her European Son.

In Decolonial Daughter: Letters from a Black Woman to her European Son, Trinidadian-American writer and activist Lesley-Ann Brown explores, through the lens of motherhood, issues such as migration, identity and nationhood, and how they relate to land, forced migrations, and imprisonment and genocide for Black and Indigenous people.

Having moved to Copenhagen, Denmark from Brooklyn over eighteen years ago, Brown attempts to contextualise her and her son's existence in a post-colonial and supposedly post-racial world in where the very machine of so-called progress has been premised upon the demise of her lineage. Through these letters, Brown writes the past into the present — from the country that has been declared "The Happiest Place in the World" — creating a vision that is a necessary alternative to the dystopian one currently being bought and sold.

We hope you can join us for this event.
