#BLACKLIVESMATTER , Amnesty International Imprisoned Writers' Series, EDINBURGH BOOK FESTIVAL

Fifty years after the assassination of Martin Luther King, black voices are still routinely dismissed and black and minority ethnic people are under-represented across many areas of society but over-represented in our prisons. Today we highlight black activist voices who are following in the footsteps of King. Authors reading include Paul Kenyon, Bruce Pascoe, Lilja Sigurðardóttir and Novuyo Rosa Tshuma.
