The fifth What’s Happening in Black British History? Workshop will be at the Institute of Historical Research, Senate House, on Thursday 27th October 2016.

Our keynote speaker will be Kehinde Andrews, a lead member of the team delivering the UK’s first BA course in Black Studies at Birmingham City University.

We’ve got some great panels too. The first, Beyond Mary Prince: Black Women in Dialogue will be delivered by studnets from the MA course in Black British Writing at Goldsmiths, University of London. Then we’ve got Recovering and Engaging the Public with Black British Histories – where we’ll hear from those who are finding histories to bring to the public, in exhibitions at the Black Cultural Archives and Epping Forest, and in novels and interactive presentations for young people. The third session, Identity and Involvement in Doing Justice to Black British History in Schools will be brought to us by a group of teachers involved in the excellent Justice2History project, who some of you might remember from WHBBH1.
