I am so excited to be taking part in Brighton Book Festival 2023 hosted by @afroribooks & @thefeministbookshop. So honoured to be part of the Self Care discussion panel.
Self-care has become the latest buzzword in the predominantly white, wealthy, ‘wellness’ industry. But, self-care actually has a much more radical history, rooted in the civil rights movement of the 1960s and carried forward by black writers and activists such as Audre Lorde.
In this discussion panel, we’ll be looking at how the notion of self-care has been co-opted and marginalised groups have been excluded from self-care spaces. I will be joining authors who have challenged the white, ableist, cis, heteronormative, and exclusive self-care movements and asking how we can honor the radical history of self-care.
You don’t want to miss out on this.
Look forward to seeing you there!
