This episode features Kadija George! She's a legendary figure in the Black British literary world, one of the truest pioneers. Kadija writes under the name Kadija Sesay, and is an literary activist, poet, short-story writer and publisher of Sable LitMag, which is on hiatus but will be back. Kadija's achievements are huge. She has helped so many writers, soooo many, and has been rewarded with the Cosmopolitan Woman of Achievement, Candace Woman of Achievement, the Voice Community Award in Literature and the Millennium Woman of the Year. She deserves all this and more.
In 2015 her cousin Sheku Bayoh was killed by Scottish police and an incident not unlike George Floyd's murder, and there are links beneath to the campaign, so please do check those out.
