18.09.2020: Online book launch, The Silenced Voice by Marcia Morgan

September 16, 2020

The Silenced Voice, a new book encouraging people to think differently and identify strategies to overcome the anxiety and pain associated to the feelings of invisibility, exclusion and isolation, will be launched online on 18th September 2020.

The Silenced Voice

The book by Dr Marcia Morgan, narrates the challenges black women face because of the intersectionality of gender and race in the UK, with a focus on the academic success and career progression many of these black women are able to achieve.

Dr Morgan captures the emotional turmoil, as well as what it ‘feels’ like to be an intersectional subject in two white male dominated institutions: Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service, UK and Higher Education.

She uses the rich texture of words to capture the readers imagination, by igniting an emotional connection as well as a logical interpretation of the experience shared through the poems, interview extracts and interpretative narrative.

How to attend the event

The virtual launch of The Silenced Voice will be held on 18th September 2020 from 21:00 to 22:30 CEST (20:00 to 21:30 BST) via Zoom.
