Africare, with sponsorship from Chevron, is hosting a panel discussion entitled, “Africa’s Literary Identity: Who Defines It?” on September 27th, 2013, to be hosted at Pace University.
Inspired by Maaza Mengiste's article in the Guardian, "What makes a real African?" Africare looks to a distinguished panel to discuss how the shaping of identity influences the story that is told. Join us for the panel discussion and reception following.
