Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie in conversation with Reni Eddo-Lodge at WOW 2018

Why have just one best-selling author on your stage when you can have two? As part of Women of the World 2018, the multi-award-winning writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie joined Reni Eddo-Lodge, author of the acclaimed Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race, on our Royal Festival Hall stage.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Reni Eddo-Lodge in Conversation by Southbank Centre: Think Aloud

In this fascinating recording of the event, the pair discuss some of today’s most pressing cultural issues, including blogging, social media and discussions on race.

There's a sense that, when being asked to talk about race, after you've written a book, you're supposed to have the answers, you're supposed to have the solution; and while you're having the solution, you're supposed to cater for the emotional needs of the people listening to you
