Publication Launch: Some Writers Can Give You Two Heartbeats

Nontsikelelo Mutiti and Tinashe Mushakavanhu (Founding Partners, Black Chalk & Co. and 1-54 Forum Programme Curators) discuss their recently released publication, Some Writers Can Give You Two Heartbeats (2019). This experimental publication is a thoroughly useful guide to the critical and historical texts on the literary culture of Zimbabwe. It has the advantage of being well focused on the topic and thus serves as an essential point of departure to celebrate notions of beauty as they relate to the literary and the visual, a product of Black Chalk & Co.’s preoccupation with the archive.
