Individual 'Resistance' pocketbook
One of three pocketbooks from the RadioBook Rwanda series. 'Resistance' is our blue pocket book and features:
- 'The Sykes are Woke', a short story by Annick La Reine Shimwa
- 'Intaganzwa Ziri Maso', a translation of 'The Sykes are Woke' from English into Kinyarwanda, translated by Emma-Claudine Ntirenganya
- mixed media collages by Jess Atieno
Set in an alternate reality, 'The Sykes are Woke' is an intricate African-futurist origin story. Author Annick La Reine Shimwa tells the tale of Shama and how she came to be the respected leader of a young and highly skilled army. Jess Atieno’s collage works depict scenes of marches and demonstrations and place women’s bodies centre stage. Together, Shimwa and Atieno are the Resistance radiobook.
The book has a unique format: paperback, die-cut interlocking cover and hand sewn.
