Kwame Kwei-Armah in Senegal

Actor, playwright and director Kwame Kwei-Armah travelled to Senegal to meet onion farmers marginalised because of unfair trade laws.

On his return, he was interviewed in Metro and the Financial Times, and he spoke at the 2004 Labour Conference on the subject where he met then Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Kwame also helped launch Christian Aid's Freedom Sculpture at Liverpool's Maritime Museum to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the end of slavery.

He returned to Senegal to curate an artistic festival in late 2010 involving Baaba Maal and Danny Glover.
