Join Asanté (ARU alumni) as she discusses her experience of how black history was taught, not only with a focus on ‘African Americans’ but also black people as slaves in which she argues “has created a significant misrepresentation of the presence of black people in the UK”.
She will explore the presence of black people within the UK after the well-known windrush generation including the Atlantic slave trade including black British figures throughout British history such as Shirley Bassey, Stuart Hall, Olaudah Equiano and Mary Prince.
This talk will also focus on those within the black community today that are making great accomplishments, such as Denise Lewis, Jacky Wright, Ade Adepitan and Sir Kenneth Olisa.
