In conversation with Tamala Edwards, anchor, 6ABC Action News morning edition

Bernardine Evaristo won the 2019 Man Booker Prize and the Dublin Literary Award for Girl, Woman, Other, “a breathtaking symphony of Black women’s voices” that explores the merging of identity and Britain’s African and Caribbean colonial history. Her other novels include The Emperor’s Babe and Hello Mum, both of which were adapted into BBC radio programs, in addition to her short fiction, poetry, literary criticism, and drama. A longtime advocate for greater inclusion of artists of color, she co-founded Britain’s first Black women’s theater company, first major Black theater conference, and first major conference on Black writing. She is a fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts and was awarded an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for services to literature. An exploration of identity, race, class, aging, and the power of persistence, Manifesto is a memoir of Evaristo’s intertwined life and multi-decade effort to share her work with the world.
