Sir Ian Blatchford In conversation with Amanda Khozi Mukwashi – A Science Museum Group Open Talk
Science Museum Group Chief Executive Sir Ian Blatchford is joined in conversation by Christian Aid CEO Amanda Khozi Mukwashi, author of the thought-provoking exploration of identity, race and culture, But Where Are You Really From?
In But Where Are You Really From? Amanda Khozi Mukwashi tells the story of her experience as a Christian black woman with Zambian heritage, born and living in the UK. The book, her first, explores issues of race and culture and how it feels to be judged on skin colour when identity is made up of so many things.
