Our April 12th Supper Club is with special guest, Monica Macias, author of the incredible memoir, Black Girl from Pyongyang
Mónica Macías was sent at the age of seven to North Korea to study and reside under the care of the then-leader of the country, Kim Il Sung. However, just months after her arrival, her father, president of Equatorial Guinea, Francisco Macías Nguema, was ousted in a bloody coup d'état. Following her father's trial and execution by firing squad, Monica, was left stranded in North Korea. Despite this, Kim Il Sung continued to fulfil his promise to take care of her and sent her to the Military Boarding School in Pyongyang, where she remained until her late teens.
Optimistic yet unflinching, Monica’s astonishing and unique story challenges us to see the world through different eyes.
