Elsa M’Bala continues with her musical compositions, in conversation with the poetry of Christopher Okigbo. Céline Poulin voices the weekly reading of the French translation in progress of Ali Mazrui’s Trial of Christopher Okigbo. The session features a radio story by Roopa Gogineni and her colleague Michael Onyiego, focusing on the racial divides in the American South. The tensions are highlighted by the issues of memory and representation: the refusal to take down a statue of a slave owner, and the blind adherence to the confederate flag.
