‘I had to keep walking through the world.’ In Summer 2019, journalist Anita Sethi was subjected to a race hate crime while on a train. In the aftermath, her desire to be in nature led to a decision to walk the Pennine Way, an act she writes about in her debut book I Belong Here: A Journey Along the Backbone of Britain. While asserting her right to be in the world and take up space as a brown woman, she transforms a cruel, ugly act into one of healing, kindness and compassion, considering on the way the meanings of home and belonging. Anita is a writer and broadcaster from Manchester. Her career highlights include going birdwatching with Margaret Atwood in the UK’s oldest nature reserve. Presented in partnership with Manchester Museum.
