During Black History Month, St George’s is excited to welcome Malik Al Nasir to deliver a public lecture about Sandbach, Tinne & Company and those who are buried at St George’s Everton on Sunday 1st October at 4.30pm. You can book tickets here.
Malik Al Nasir is an author, poet and academic from Liverpool. His memoir ‘Letters to Gil’ is a compelling account of his childhood experiences in a brutal UK Local Authority care system, which at eighteen, left him traumatised, semi-literate, homeless, and destitute. A chance meeting with poet and activist Gil Scott-Heron was to prove life changing, setting him on a path to success. Malik is currently reading for a PhD in history at University of Cambridge on a full ESRC scholarship, and he’s recently been awarded the prestigious ‘Sydney Smith Memorial Prize’ for ‘outstanding achievement’ at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge as well as The Vice Chancellors Award for ‘Global Impact’.
This event is in partnership with PollyPort CIC and Writing on the Wall.
