About this Event

IIf you are interested in volunteering at the Nicole Andrews Community Library then please come at 6pm for a meeting about how you can get involved

We opened the Nicole Andrews Community Library in March 2023 in honour of Dr Nicole Andrews who lost her battle with cancer a year earlier. As part of the library will be running a book club. The first event will be an discussion between Nubia Assata and Kehinde Andrews on her latest book 'What's Next For Us?'. Nubia was only 18 when the book was released last year and this is already her second book, following on from Silent Screams, her poetry Anthology in 2020. We are proud to support a local, inspirational young author.

What Is Next For Us? Is in itself a question. Opening up a discourse on the future of black political activity, modern Pan-African pursuits and the relationship between the African continent and the global black diaspora. Nubia answers a multitude of questions covering the urgency of psychological liberation, the erroneous attachment to Black Messianism and the importance of radical collectivism.

Following her debut book Silent Screams, Nubia stays true to her commitment to use her writings to mitigate the legacies of colonialism and slavery, but this time she focuses on the economic and socio-political legacies that ravage the global black community.

Ultimately bringing the reader to ask themselves the culminating question, what is next for us?

Nubia Assata is a young ,eighteen-year-old, up-and-coming author who integrates her intersecting activism for black consciousness and mental health through her work. She has used her experiences with mental health and racism, whilst being a young black woman in Britain as a springboard to open the conversation of what ‘Blackness’ means in 21st Century Britain and the world.

Nubia Assata is an up and coming author and thinker; actively dedicated to bringing back radical thought to a central and accessible position in youth culture in order to mobilise her peers.

Kehinde Andrews is professor of Black Studies at Birmingham City University and chair of the Harambee Organisation of Black Unity
