Maxine Beneba Clarke PODCAST

This morning I had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with Maxine Beneba Clarke and discuss her autobiography The Hate Race and her upcoming spoken word sets at MonaFoma. We talked about racism in Australia where "he conversation about race is so behind - the minute you say the word race or racism people just start screaming," and how she believes (and so do I) that some of the answers lie in artistic storytelling and that libraries offer an equalising access to knowledge.
