Looking back; Moving forwards: the history of Black Lives Matter (BLM)

Conveners: Wolfson Welfare Team and BAME representative

Speakers: Professor Olivette Otele; Professor Hakim Adi; Professor Nayanika Mathur

Wolfson College, together with the Welfare officers, presents a panel discussion on the historical context of Black Lives Matter (BLM) in the UK. What is the history of Black individuals and communities in this country? And how do we use this deep and fascinating history of Black lives--with all their achievements and struggles--to move forward with the BLM in the future? Dr. Nayanika Mathur discusses these questions with Britain's leading experts on the history of the Black experience in the UK: Prof. Olivette Otele and Prof. Hakim Adi.

This panel discussion is a part of a series of events arranged by the Wolfson Welfare Team and the BAME representative to celebrate Black History Month at Wolfson.
