Nana Ayebia was on the Arts, Culture and Heritage panel and gave a paper titled “African Publishing as a Site of Resistance” in which she argued that the lack of Black people in the publishing industry affects the writing and reception of their work and thus their general perception in the world. She also argued for a more inclusive Western canon that would reflect the works of people of African and Caribbean descent. She said the most significant achievement of African writing and publishing is to alter the world’s perception of Africa and its people.
