Meeting Marlon James

Miranda and Marlon gimpA wonderful day at London’s Southbank Centre (my favourite place in London) yesterday attending its ‘Being a Man Festival‘.

I attended a few of the sessions but, by far, my favourite was the discussion entitled ‘Kanye West and the Paradox of Black Male Identity in Hip-Hop’, which was chaired by the writer and broadcaster Ekow Eshun¬†in conversation with¬†2015 Booker prize winner Marlon James and Matrix Chambers barrister¬†Matthew Ryder QC.

Marlon was kind enough to sign a copy of his Booker prize winning ‘A Brief History of Seven Killings‘ for me afterwards.
