'Precious' is a tale of mothers and daughters, of a struggle with racial identity and a journey to find a sense of belonging.
Precious Williams was just ten weeks old when her Nigerian mother arranged for her to be fostered by a 57 year old white woman, beginning a story of growing up black in a white community, of struggling to find an identity that fits, of deciphering a childhood full of secrets and dysfunction.
Precious's talk will include readings from her acclaimed autobiography and an audience Q&A session followed by book signings.
Part of the Black History Month 2012 programme.
