A Space to Call Home: Kamal Al-Solaylee & Ben Philippe
Originally aired on October 23
Re-release November 30
Join Kamal Al-Solaylee, author of the bestselling Intolerable: A Memoir of Extremes and New York-based author and screenwriter Ben Philippe for an insightful conversation about the universal need to find connection with homeland heritages and inclusion in all spaces– particularly white ones. Al-Solaylee’s latest book, Return: Why We Go Back to Where We Come From, draws on dozens of interviews with people who long to return to their homelands, and sets the narrative of going home against geopolitical forces that will shape much of this century. Philippe will present his debut non-fiction work, Sure, I’ll Be Your Black Friend, a hilariously candid memoir-in-essays, chronicling a lifetime of being the Black friend in predominantly white spaces.
Interviewer: Perry King
