You are welcome on my blog anytime.

Great Molara, I've always been an avid reader of your blog. You're doing a great work only that you refused, neglected and ignored to gratify the yearning of your fan - me! This is unforgivable. Have I congratulated you for winning the Commonwealth Short Story Competition and one other award this year? My congrats! Isaac Ogezi

Greetings Molara from London!

It's Melanie here and I thought you'd be interested to know about an event that's happening in the British Library next month.
I can send more information if you want, but be aware this is the first time I've ever blogged ANYWHERE, so if my copy and paste techniques fail I can send you the link via another route...so here goes:

B68 Season
Film and Discussion
African states and the legacy of colonialisation
Saturday 1 November 2008
Debate continues on whether state structures left by departing colonial powers have helped or hindered Africa's development. Using the remarkable, vibrant documentary Naij: A History Of Nigeria (2007) as a case study, this event looks at the recent past of the continent and explores how its turbulent nations can build secure political futures.

The panel will include Jide Olanrewaju, director of Naij; Richard Dowden, director of the Royal African Society, whose latest book Africans is published by Portobello Books; Onyekachi Wambu, journalist, television producer and editor of Empire Windrush: Fifty Years of Writing About Black Britain and Under the Tree of Talking: Leadership for Change in Africa; and poet, playwright and radio presenter Gabriel Gbadamosi.

Presented in association with London Borough of Camden Black History Forum

Event Time: 14.00 - 18.00
Location: Conference Centre, British Library
Price: Free (advance booking recommended)

Actually Molara it looks better from the British Library website, so please let me know if (and how!)you'd like me to send that.

All the best, Melanie
