Shailja Patel: Migritude

Shailja Patel - Migritude

Migritude is a term coined by the ineffable Shailja Patel which denotes the migrant attitude.

In her book, Migritude, Shailja tells the story of migrant attitude through prose, poetry and short stories. Shailja is an internationally acclaimed Kenyan poet, playwright, theatre artist, and political activist.

In this episode of the podcast, Patel sat and spoke to Dr Alma-Nalisha about her book, migration, politics, Kenya and identity. This is a conversation filled with musings about migration, womanhood and identity.
