Event HJ24

Sarah Ladipo Manyika in conversation with Ingrid Ortega

Venue: Tec de Monterrey, Ciudad de México

The writer Sarah Ladipo Manyika (Nigeria/United Kingdom) was the Director of the Board of the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco, California, and has been on the jury of a range of literary awards. She is the author of three books that deal with the African diaspora through fiction and non-fiction. One of them is In Dependence, which tells the story of over 30 years of the relationship between Tayo, a young Nigerian who goes to study at Oxford, and Vanessa, the daughter of a former colonial official. The author shows how the political becomes the personal in this story about the “dependencies” that they must both overcome in order to make their relationship work; an epic love story set during the difficult years which followed the independence of the African colonies. In conversation with Ingrid Ortega.
