Stella Dadzie (author of the forthcoming A Kick in the Belly) joins co-author Heart of the Race author Suzanne Scafe to discuss how enslaved women in the West Indies played a distinctly female role in the development of a culture of slave resistance – and how by sustaining or adapting remembered cultural practices, they ensured that the lives of chattel slaves retained both meaning and purpose.

To celebrate 50 years of Verso Books we bring you Verso Live, a new virtual live events programme. We have selected authors to speak on a wide range of subjects including the future of work, what a feminist city might look like, how our virtual spaces have become the ‘new normal’, and how enslaved West Indian women played a distinct role in slave resistance. These events are free and will be live-streamed to Verso’s YouTube and Facebook pages fortnightly on Thursday evenings UK time, as well as being made available to watch after the event has finished.
