Black British Feminism: 1921-2021
Black British women have organised for over a century, within the UK, but often their importance to British, Black and International History are under-recognised. Seun Matiluko will be discussing the long durée of Black British Feminism from 1921-2021, speaking on everything from “triple oppression” to political blackness, and what past activism can teach us about how to organise in the present.
All are warmly invited to attend and participate.
