Join critically acclaimed actor David Harewood in conversation with Alain ‘Fusion’ Clapham — founder of BMT — to mark the paperback publication of David’s powerful memoir, Maybe I Don’t Belong Here: A Memoir of Race, Identity, Breakdown and Recovery.
Is it possible to be Black and British and feel welcome and whole?
In his powerful memoir, David Harewood charts his journey from working class Birmingham to the bright lights of Hollywood. He uncovers a devastating family history and shares insight into a life lived after an experience of psychosis. Maybe I Don’t Belong Here is a rallying cry to examine the systems and biases that shape our society and a groundbreaking account of the impact of everyday racism on Black mental health. Birmingham born David Harewood trained as an actor at London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and is known for his high-profile roles in Homeland, Blood Diamond, and Supergirl, and also his powerful BAFTA nominated BBC documentary, Psychosis and Me. Maybe I Don’t Belong Here is his first book.
The interview will be followed by a short Q&A and book signing opportunity.
