Online talk: Johny Pitts: Afropean

Festival

Description

The award-winning writer, photographer and broadcast journalist Johny Pitts talks about his book Afropean: Notes from Black Europe, winner of the prestigious 2020 Jhalak Prize.


Afropean is an on-the-ground documentary of areas where Europeans of African descent are juggling their multiple allegiances and forging new identities. Here is an alternative map of the continent, which presents Afropeans as lead actors in their own story.


Johny Pitts has received various awards for his work exploring African-European identity, including a Decibel Penguin Prize and an ENAR (European Network Against Racism) award. He is the curator of the online journal Afropean.com, part of the Guardian’s Africa Network.
