What's Happening in Black British History? imageFollowing the success of previous events in London, Liverpool, Bristol, Preston and Huddersfield, we would like to invite you to the tenth of the Institute of Commonwealth Studies’ Black British History Workshops (WHBBHX) at the University of Leicester, on Thursday 2nd May 2019.

The aim of the series is to foster a creative dialogue between researchers, educationalists (mainstream and supplementary), artists and writers, archivists and curators, and policy makers. It seeks to identify and promote innovative new research into the history of people of African origin or descent in the UK and facilitate discussion of the latest developments in the dissemination of Black British history in a wide variety of settings including the media, the classroom and lecture hall, and museums and galleries, thus providing an opportunity to share good practice.

The full agenda with details of speakers will be published in April. To register to attend, please follow the booking instructions on the Institute of Commonwealth Studies website.
