WHAT WE'RE READING, WATCHING AND LISTENING TO

January - From Nayantara

Each month PPAGS will highlight a different member of the 20-21 cohort to share what they're checking out!

WHAT I’M READING...

Care to get some free unsolicited advice about how we can all be more caring to each other? Have a read through "Dear Ijeawele or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions" by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (it’s only 80 pages!)

WHAT I'M WATCHING...

La Casa de Papel (and I highly recommend you watch it in Spanish + English subtitles (if need be)). I hope you have some time on your hands, because once you start you won't be able to stop.

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO...

I have been jamming to Burna Boy’s latest album “African Giant” on REPEAT. And for some educational content have a listen to Ep. #379: Robyn Maynard by Kreative Kontrol where activist and author Robyn Maynard shares her thoughts on the effect of state violence on Black lives.
