Pass Me the Microphone w/ Rehana Zaman

Rehana Zaman draws on black women’s experiences of activism, immigration and race relations in ‘That’s Life’, a two-part audio work developed for Pass Me the Microphone. Part conversation, part song, voice and music, ‘That’s Life’ reflects on the ways in which groups, organisations and systems, inscribe racialised and gendered roles within society.

Part one features a conversation with Dr Gail Lewis, a sociologist who specialises in psychosocial studies of race and gender. Gail was a long standing member of Brixton Black Women’s Group and a co-founder of the Organisation for Women of African and Asian Descent (OWAAD). She has worked on the European Journal of Women’s Studies and Feminist Review and recently trained as a psychodynamic psychotherapist.

In part two Justice for Domestic Workers, a campaigning group calling for justice and rights for Britain’s foreign domestic workers, present a radio ballad framed around their precarious immigration status and efforts to pass the Life in the UK citizenship tests.
