I Refuse Episode 3 of 3

Last in a series of short stories commissioned to mark the centenary of the birth of the American Civil Rights heroine Rosa Parks. Illustrating moments of resistance, the stories are inspired by acts of determination and non-cooperation, committed by people (real or imagined) fighting against prevailing attitudes and political authority.

Hisham Matar completes the series with a story that takes a wry look at the pressures brought to bear upon a famous author, who is in exile from his homeland, by fellow countrymen and exiles.

Produced by Kirsteen Cameron.
