Drawing from Africa-centric and Black feminist thought, Minna Salami presents a new prism for how to engage with the world through her book Sensuous KnowledgeA Black Feminist Approach for Everyone. By weaving intellectual, mythological and artistic traditions, Minna offers accessible and cleverly crafted essays shedding new insight into knowledge production, liberation, decolonization, Black identity, womanhood and sisterhood, power and beauty. Bernardine Evaristo, winner of the 2019 Booker Prize, describes Sensuous Knowledge as ‘intellectual soul food’. 
In this one-off masterclass, Minna will share her expertise and multidisciplinary approach to non-fiction writing. Over the two-hour session, participants will learn about different research methodologies and how to develop one’s ideas into meaningful non-fiction work. 
This masterclass is presented by Africa Writes and Arvon
