BRITTLE PAPER: THE DECADE PROJECT | #BringBackOurGirls Panel
This special event is part of The Decade Project, a series of creative and intellectual explorations designed to celebrate Brittle Paper’s 10-year anniversary and the evolution of African literature since 2010. By revisiting the kidnap of the Chibok girls, panelists will discuss its significance, how the story has continued to reverberate through the years, and how documenting the systemic violence inherent to the girls’ kidnapping can offer possibilities for healing. Featuring: Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani, Abdulbasit Kassim, Titilope Sonuga, and Mona Eltahawy. Moderated by Ainehi Ejieme Edoro (English & African Cultural Studies, Founder and Editor of Brittle Paper)
