February 28 @ 7:30 PM PST
Tsitsi Dangarembga is a novelist, playwright, activist, and filmmaker. She is the author of the Tambudzai Trilogy, which traces the life of a rural girl from her childhood in colonial Zimbabwe to her adulthood in a country repressed by political elites. The first novel in the series, Nervous Conditions, was “hailed as one of the 20th century’s most significant works of African literature” (The New York Times). In her essay collection, Black and Female, Dangarembga examines the legacy of imperialism on her own life and on every aspect of Black-embodied African life. Dangarembga lives and works in Zimbabwe, where she is the founding director of the Institute of Creative Arts for Progress in Africa Trust.
