Black History Month – It’s not about the statues
It’s not about the Statues: A monologue written and performed by Thabo Makuyana
Is a short piece that narrates the real life lived experiences of Refugees and Asylum seekers who have arrived in the U.K.
Part of it is from the first hand experience of the writer. Others parts of it are from testimonies of other asylum seekers and refugees who have confided in the writer.
Other parts are from the meetings attended by the writer and news reels that land on our TV screens and Newspapers highlighting issues that affect Asylum Seekers and Refugees.
Above all else, it’s all about giving human life, more value, than, inanimate objects.
