Roundhouse - The Good Immigrant

The Good Immigrant (published in September 2016) was crowdfunded in three days and discusses issues such as casteism, colourism, misappropriation and the word namaste. It is an important and relevant examination of the lives of immigrants/children of immigrants in the UK today.

1 Aug 2016 - The Roundhouse, Camden, London

Join Nikesh Shukla and a host of contributors of the forthcoming essay collection The Good Immigrant for an evening of exclusive preview readings and a panel discussion on the state of race and immigration in the UK.

In the wake of the referendum and the immigration debate, this event, featuring writers Vera Chok, Inua Ellams, Varaidzo, Miss L (Casting Call Woe), Daniel York Loh (and more to be announced) will be a relevant and timely look at what it means to be black, Asian or minority ethnic in the UK today. There will be music from gal-dem’s DJ Tone.

Proceeds from this event will support Hope Not Hate and the Roundhouse’s work with young people.

The book is out in September but you can pre-order it now.
