Dr Gabriel is on a week-long visit to Austin, Texas organised by BBA Patron Virginia Cumberbatch, Head of the Center for Community Engagement at the University of Texas.

During her visit she will be delivering a presentation at the University of Texas on Ivory Tower hosted jointly by the Center for Community Engagement and the Black Studies Department. Commenting on the interview and her visit to Austin, Dr Gabriel said: “I’m so happy to be visiting Austin again and especially to be collaborating with our US Patron Virginia Cumberbatch. I’m honoured to have been interviewed by Hopeton Hay for Kazi Radio. Community Radio plays such an important role in encouraging  reflection and discussion on important issues affecting Black communities. It was especially meaningful to talk about Toni Morrison and how Beloved helped me engage with Black Feminism and appreciate the value of lived experience in creating critical consciousness on raced and gendered discrimination, both historically and in contemporary society.”
