WHBBH3 is the third in an Institute of Commonwealth Studies series exploring the history of peoples of African origin and descent in Britain.
The day will begin with a keynote speech by pioneering activist and publisher Eric Huntley. He’ll be followed by a great line-up of engaging, informed speakers who will spend the day discussing how to challenge the conventional narratives, the practicalities of teaching Black British History, and giving us some new perspectives on the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Then, our expert panel will provide an opportunity to reflect on the day’s discussions, before we finish off the day with a Drinks Reception.
The full programme and event details are available on the Institute of Commonwealth Studies website.

There will be a registration fee of £20 (£5 for students/unwaged) to cover the costs of lunch and refreshments.
