Black Power: Discussing Malorie Blackman’s Noughts & Crosses
Thu. 24 October 2013 | 7 PM
If you’ve been bowled over by Noughts & Crosses by the UK’s children’s laureate Malorie Blackman, or even if you haven’t read the book but want to find out what you’ve been missing, come along to this energetic evening discussion. Noughts & Crosses explores an alternative world in which dark- skinned Crosses enact Jim Crow-like laws against pale-skinned Noughts. This ground-breaking novel – which was one of the 20 titles handed out for World Book Night this year – will serve as a starting-point for a broader discussion about racism in western society.
