Panashe Chigumadzi has announced the dates for her book and essay tour in Germany and the Netherlands. The Zimbabwean-South African author of These Bones Will Rise Again (The Indigo Press, 2018), an account of the Zimbabwean people’s revolt against Robert Mugabe, and of, most recently, the talked-about essay “Why I’m No Longer Talking to Nigerians About Race” (Africa Is a Country, 2019), which led to our #WhyI’mTalkingAboutRace response series, will be discussing both works on her six stops.

One of our leading essayists and feminist voices, Chigumadzi received the 2018 Brittle Paper Award for Essays for “History Through the Body or Rights of Desire, Rights of Conquest,” an incisive critique of JM Coetzee’s Disgrace and reckoning with race, gender, sex, land, and power in South African literature, politics, and everyday living.
