How do we respond to a world full of injustice? South African born writer Gillian Slovo has spent a career considering the answer. Her Prix RFI Témoin du Monde-winning novel Red Dust is set around a fictional hearing of South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission; her memoir Every Secret Thing tells the story of her parents Joe Slovo and Ruth First – South Africa's pioneering anti-apartheid white activists. Her plays cover issues including Guantánamo Bay, the 2011 English riots, and ISIS. For this year’s sermon Gillian considers what hope democracy? Hosted by Rachel Cooke.

This event is presented in partnership with Manchester Cathedral and sponsored by Castlefield, responsible financial advice and thoughtful investment specialist with headquarters in Manchester.
