What’s Happening in Black British History? A Conversation

Senate House
Malet Street
London WC1E 7HU

Thursday 30th October – tickets £7.50-£15

4502346Thirty years after the publication of Peter Fryer’s Staying Power, immigration is still a hotly contested topic, while slavery continues to dominate popular perceptions of Black British History. New research is revealing different stories, but how is this being presented in Britain’s classrooms and museums?  We need a conversation between those actively involved in researching and communicating the history of peoples of African origin and descent in Britain about what it means to us today.

The Institute of Commonwealth Studies is hosting a series of workshops with the aim of fostering a creative dialogue between researchers, educationalists (mainstream and supplementary), archivists and curators, and policy makers. The first workshop will take place on 30th October. Tickets and further information can be found HERE.
