50 Years and Counting: A Conversation with Professors Wole Soyinka, Kwame Anthony Appiah and Henry Louis Gates Jr

Professor Wole Soyinka, Professor Kwame Anthony Appiah (Clare 1972) and Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr (Clare 1973) are leading academic voices and hugely influential in their fields of expertise. But had they not met at Cambridge 50 years ago, their lives may have looked very different.

Join us as they reunite, in Cambridge once again, for a fascinating insight into their long-lasting friendship. In a panel discussion moderated by Gillian Tett (Clare 1986), they will look back over the last 50 years, consider how they have influenced each other, and share reflections on their lived experiences.

Seats in Lady Mitchell Hall are first-come, first-served. After these spaces are gone, you will be able to watch the event via livestream.
