Join us for an evening of music, talk and reading by Jason Timbuktu Diakité - about his life and his new book "A drop of midnight" (En droppe midnatt).

In search of his roots, renowned Swedish hip hop artist Jason "Timbuktu" Diakité tracks his family's history from the slave plantations in South Carolina to the welfare state Sweden. "A Drop of Midnight" is a gripping tale of ancestry, identity, resistance, racism and a longing to belong.

Musical performance by Timbuktu together with the Harlem based jazz band Rakiem Walker Project!
