George the Poet | Track Record: Me, Music, and the War on Blackness
Sat 20 Apr 2024 | 8:00pm - 9:00pm
Spoken word artist George Mpanga is constantly pushing boundaries. Part memoir, part interrogation of society, his book Track Record is searing piece of social commentary that radically shifts the conversation around race and power. From his time at Cambridge University to succeeding in the music industry, George has abandoned his early liberal naivety to engage with the reality of a world order committed to oppression. Join George on his journey.
