Ruthie Rogers and Afua Hirsch
After reading Afua Hirsch’s moving political memoir Brit(ish), I asked if we might have a conversation for River Cafe Table 4. She said yes.
Anyone who has watched her documentaries, read her articles, or participated in her grassroots organising, knows that Afua’s insights on racism, inclusion and British history is radical, brave and brilliant. Before going into the restaurant for lunch together, we spoke about what her Ghanaian grandmothers cooked for her as a teenager in London, the food she prepares for her daughter, and much more.
