Join Transition editors Vincent Brown, Glenda Carpio, and Tommie Shelby for a reading and celebration of the journal’s mission: to offer the freshest, most compelling writing from and about Africa and the global diaspora.
Reading their favorite excerpts from issues #108 “Boogie Man” and #109 “Persona,” the editors will be joined by special guest and Cave Canem poet Robin Coste Lewis reading poems from Sanctuary.
Transition is a unique forum for fresh perspectives on global issues, literature and art, cultures and people, with an emphasis on Africa and the Diaspora. Founded in 1961 in Uganda by the late Rajat Neogy, Transition quickly established itself as a leading forum for intellectual debate. The current series, edited at Harvard’s W.E.B. Du Bois Institute, carries on the original’s tough-minded, far-reaching criticism, both cultural and political.
