Aretha & Me & You

HULL CENTRAL LIBRARY, Albion Street, Hull, HU1 3TF

1 Oct 2018

8:00pm

£8

Aretha was a master singer, cover artist, and a great gospel and jazz pianist; and helped fund the Civil Rights movement. She was a woman with her share of grief, joy, and power.

She transcended ethnicity, nationality, religion and gender; yet was very much rooted in being an African American woman living in Detroit, and dedicated to overcoming her socially-prescribed destiny.

Gifty Burrows, Hull-based educationalist and pioneer for including African stories in

the wider local narrative, and writer Bonnie Greer will be in conversation: What did

R-E-S-P-E-C-T mean to Aretha, growing up on the south side of Chicago? How did the late Queenof Soul shape and wake the lives of Bonnie and Gifty?

Bonnie and Gifty will spin the discs, read from work, and share memories. The evening will conclude with a Q&A session open to the audience.
