To coincide with the world premiere of the first modern opera on slavery, Imoinda (at the London Festival of American Music), a roundtable discussion on "Voices of the Enslaved: Tales of Love and Longing" will take place with composer Odaline de la Martinez, who will join historian Sophie White (speaking on 18th century slave testimony), writer and director Candace Allen, author and Vanity Fair travel editor Michelle Jana Chan, research fellow Kristy Warren and Imoinda's librettist Joan Anim-Addo. The panel will be moderated by BBC jazz broadcaster and journalist Kevin Le Gendre. The event will take place at the University of Notre Dame's London campus, 1-4 Suffolk Street, London SW1Y 4HG (near Trafalgar Square). All are welcome.
