NOT on our Shelf. Order now!


Plantation Memories is a compilation of episodes of everyday racism written in the form of short psychoanalytical stories. From the question Where do you come from? to Hair Politics to the N-word, the book is a strong, eloquent, and elaborate piece, which deconstructs the normality of everyday racism and exposes the violence of being placed as the Other.

Released at the Berlin International Literature Festival in 2008, soon the book became internationally acclaimed and part of numerous academic curricula. Known for her subversive practice of giving body, voice, and image to her own texts, Grada Kilomba has adapted her book into a staged reading and video installation. Plantation Memories is an important contribution to the global cultural discourse.
