Akala: Natives

Award-winning hip-hop artist, social entrepreneur and writer Akala discusses his bestselling debut, Natives, a searing modern polemic on race and class in the British Empire. He reflects on growing up poor, mixed-race and politicised in Britain during the 1980s and ’90s, and widens his experiences into a nuanced historical treatise that the Guardian has lauded as ‘the kind of disruptive, aggressive intellect that a new generation is closely watching.’ Introduced by Sacha McMeeking, head of University of Canterbury’s School of Māori and Indigenous Studies.
