Margo Jefferson & Reni Eddo-Lodge: On Michael Jackson

Sunday 1st July 2018 7:30pm - 9pm Royal Festival Hall Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Ten years on from his death, hear Margo Jefferson talk to Reni Eddo-Lodge about one of the great and controversial icons of the 20th century, Michael Jackson. These acclaimed and award-winning authors touch on what his legacy and music mean today, and what his life tells us about our culture as a whole.

Winner of a Pulitzer Prize and author of the 2016 Baillie Gifford-shortlisted Negroland, Margo Jefferson has long been hailed for her groundbreaking writing on African-American culture.

In her latest book, On Michael Jackson, she turns her razor-sharp mind on the many guises of the King of Pop, charting his rise and fall from the emergence of a dazzling childhood star to the height of his fame and genre-bending musical innovations, to his trial and final performances. Written with sensitivity and penetrating historical depth, this is a definitive account of a pivotal cultural figure.

Jefferson is in conversation with Reni Eddo-Lodge, the Jhalak Prize-winning and bestselling author of Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race.
