Episode 73 - REMEMBERING KARIMA BROWN: an understated legacy
Listen now
I realised while digging into her archived ouput, that my friend Karima Brown, who died from covid-19 related complications exactly a year ago, was truly brilliant in many more ways than we grasp when someone is alive.  She was an excellent journalist, broadcaster and political analyst.  Her life's work deserves a rich and complete description of it, that can live permanently and be accessible to anyone. That is necessary to ensure that we do not commit epistemicide. The work and legacies of women generally and black women in particular are understated and often rendered invisible.  This is a criminally short episode but a taste of a larger project. Enjoy this recollection of the work and impact of Karima Brown.  May she continue to live in peace.
