Join us at WORD Brooklyn for a panel featuring Emmanuel Iduma, Chiké Frankie Edozien, and Sandra Uwiringiyimana discussing memoir and the different ways they each interpret experience in their work, co-presented with The Mantle.
Through stories remembered and imagined, and images by acclaimed photographers, A Stranger's Pose draws the reader into a world of encounters in more than a dozen African towns. Iduma blends memoir, travelogue and storytelling in these fragments of a traveller's journey across several African cities.
From Victoria Island, Lagos to Brooklyn, U.S.A. to Accra, Ghana to Paris, France; from across the Diaspora to the heart of the African continent, in this memoir Nigerian journalist Chike Frankie Edozien offers a highly personal series of contemporary snapshots of same gender loving Africans, unsung Great Men living their lives, triumphing and finding joy in the face of great adversity.
