Worldwide Week with Transition Magazine


Friday, October 27, 2017, 3:00pm to 4:00pm


Harvard Book Store, 1256 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138

Harvard Book Store is pleased to host an afternoon with Transition magazine, featuring issues 123 "Fear" and 124 "Writing Black Canadas." The event features Phanuel Antwi (Guest Editor), David Chariandy (Guest Editor), Sarah Ladipo Manyika (novelist, contributor), Moses Kilolo (Managing Assistant, Jalada), Danielle Legros Georges (poet, contributor), Enzo Silon Surin (poet, contributor), and Novuyo Rosa Tshuma (Managing Editor, Jalada).

Born in Africa and bred in the diaspora, Transition is a unique forum for the freshest, most compelling, most curious ideas about race. Since its founding in Uganda in 1961, the magazine has kept apace of the rapid transformation of the black world and has remained a leading forum of intellectual debate. Now, in an age that demands ceaseless improvisation, they aim to be both an anchor of deep reflection on black life and a map charting new routes through the globalized world. Transition is a publication of the Hutchins Center at Harvard University, published three times annually by Indiana University Press.

This event is part of Worldwide Week at Harvard, which celebrates and showcases Harvard’s global presence and educational opportunities that extend beyond the Cambridge and Boston campuses.
