Hate is a Virus. Preach Equality and Justice.

Moderator: Khwezi Becker Panellists: Victoria Adukwei Bulley(UK), Khanyi Shusha(SA), Roi Bokon (Togo), Canuto Roldán (Can Can) (Mexico) South Africa has a profound legacy of racial intolerance and injustice. The dawn of a new South Africa was going to usher in a new era, yet 27 years later, racial intolerance and social injustice are still very much the landscape.  In our country and also globally, poets continue to speak out against all forms of injustice. Are their voices reaching out into spaces where they need to be heard the most? Or is it a sermon falling on deaf ears? In this session, powerful poets from all over the globe speak up. Do they feel their poetry is truly being unmuted?
