Leïla Slimani and Afua Hirsch: ‘People have a cliched way of looking at race’

The two have met in a pub, crossing borders and sharing lives. The writer Leïla Slimani, a French lady with Moroccon roots, and Afua Hirsch, a British lady with many roots, e.g. Ghanaian roots. They wondered about their likeness, they found a common ground.  

Look at the pictures and the verbal results of their meetup. Writers Leila Slimani, left, and Afua Hirsch, photographed in London

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
