  An evening with Skunk Anansie's Skin
Thursday 24 September 2020, 7pm–8pm BST

Born Deborah Anne Dyer, Skin rose to prominence in the 90s as the frontwoman of rock bank Skunk Anansie. As a black queer woman writing and performing in the heavily white and male Britpop era, she has continued to blaze trails throughout her career; in 1999 with her band she was the first black woman to headline Glastonbury, and her political lyrics have spoken to the disenfranchised for the past 25 years.

In her upcoming memoir, It Takes Blood and Guts, co-written with journalist Lucy O’Brien, Skin chronicles her life as a Jamaican working-class girl from Brixton who broke through a difficult childhood to find fame as a world-touring performer, fashion icon and social and cultural activist. She will be in conversation with Observer journalist, Miranda Sawyer.
