David Olusoga in Conversation: Black History Matters

Watch again now.
This event took place on: 7 October 2020.

The murder of George Floyd in the US reverberated around the world. It gave way to an explosion of protest, and a closer examination among historians of the systemic racism in the way the African diaspora is described. Cultural institutions around the world are examining their own legacy within the history of colonialism and imperialism. Join historian David Olusoga in conversation for his personal perspective on how we memorialise, teach and write about racism, and why black British history matters.

This event is available to the audiences and users of public libraries through the Living Knowledge Network.
