Out of thought came the word

News & Events

WE HAVE BEEN SHOCKED and appalled by the murders of unarmed black citizens, but heartened by the resistance of the Black Lives Matter movement, and the demonstrations of people of all ethnicities. But how will we keep the momentum going? As an author, I am determined to transform my feelings of anger, pain and sadness into something positive and inclusive, which gathers and unifies citizens of all ethnicities who believe in fairness, equality and love. Hopefully that is you.


CROWDFUNDING MY BLACK LIVES MATTER BOOK

To add my voice to the movement, I am raising funds to write, produce and publish an illustrated history book that narrates the story of society’s prejudices against BAME people in the 21st century, and the subsequent work of Black Lives Matter. Each person who donates the book price or more (£45.00/$55.00) will receive a copy. The venture is live right now on GoFundMe.


BLACK HISTORY - MY WORK

I have written before about the history of the black experience, in a book called Black Beauty published in 2000. It went on to become a bestseller, was honoured by the New York Public Library and become the subject of a three-part BBC documentary. My proposed new book is a “sequel” which continues this literary journey.


INVEST IN A HISTORICAL DOCUMENT

The book will become an important educational and historical document that will both inform the growing audience of people seeking to understand how we got here, and help ensure that the aims and values of the Black Lives Matter movement continue to resonate. 


This is the most important time in the history of the struggle for racial equality since the death of Martin Luther King in 1968. Let us not allow it to pass without doing what we can.

NEW VOICEOVER

On The Origin Of Species, by Charles Darwin, narrated by Ben Arogundade

Ben Arogundade was recently chosen to voice Charles Darwin’s controversial 1859 text as part of publisher Penguin Classics audio series, alongside some of the UK’s best-known actors and writers, including Andrew Scott, David Harewood, Emilia Fox and Jeanette Winterson. The assignment was challenging — the 428-page tome took 40 hours to record, is written in nineteenth-century English and is full of specialised words such as ‘ichneumonidae’ (a variety of wasp). 


Many regard Darwin’s visionary theories as opposite to the creationist’s view that God created all life on Earth, but within the text Darwin actually references “the Creator” several times, seeming comfortable with the idea that God was the catalyst for his theories of natural selection and sexual selection. Darwin was also a complex figure whom, despite his forward-thinking approach to life, was a man of his era, in referring to non-whites as “savages”. What would he say now that, 160 years after publication, one of these so-called savages was reading his work for digital release?
