Reading List: Somalinimo (till I dhimo)
Curated by Amina Jama in partnership with Free Word and with support from The Reading Agency.
To mark Free Word’s Writing Our Way Home season exploring shelter, belonging and safety, our residents at The Reading Agency created a reading list with Somali-British writer Amina Jama featuring writers from the East African diaspora. This reading list is inspired by Amina Jama’s Somalinimo (till I dhimo) installation — an immersive recreation of a 1990s Somali living room, which pays homage to Black Britishness, migration and the creativity that arises from displacement.
