Rebecca Solnit in conversation with Ángela María Pérez

Whose Story Is This?

Cartagena 2024, 

Rebecca Solnit (United States) has received, in the US, a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship and a National Book Critics’ Circle Award. This author of over 20 books covers matters such as feminism, the indigenous peoples of the United States, insurrection movements, natural disasters and people power. Her most recent title, Whose Story Is This?, seeks to question hegemonic Western narratives, analysing the pressure of those who concentrate privileges by keeping racialized people and women on the fringes; the rise of the #MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements; and cases such as that of Harvey Weinstein. This is an essential text, one that documents some of the attempts to build a more democratic world, with the failures and triumphs that this involves. In conversation with Ángela María Pérez.
