Join David Harewood MBE (Homeland, Supergirl) live at Storyhouse, Chester this November to celebrate the publication of his breathtakingly honest memoir Maybe I Don’t Belong Here – a groundbreaking account of the effects of everyday racism on identity and the mental health of Black British men.
When David was twenty-three, only two years out of drama school with a career starting to take flight, he had what he now understands to be a psychotic breakdown and ended up being sectioned under the Mental Health Act.
This event promises to be not only a powerful and provocative account of a life lived after psychosis, but also a rallying cry to examine the systems and biases that continue to shape our society.
‘As a Black British man I believe it is vital that I tell this story. It may be just one account from the perspective of a person of colour who has experienced this system, but it may be enough to potentially change an opinion or, more importantly, stop someone else from spinning completely out of control.’
