About the Event
In 2020, we have seen clearer than ever that Black people are still fighting for the right to be judged by the content of their character, and not the colour of their skin.
In her new book This Is Why I Resist, Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu demands change, action and a conscious revolution.
Join the activist and political commentator for the hard conversation we must have about racism and anti- blackness. Dr Shola will explore the deep roots of racism and anti-blackness in the UK and the US, showing us the different forms racism takes in our day-to-day lives and asking us to raise our voice to end the oppression. She’ll delve into subjects not often explored such as racial gatekeepers, white ingratitude, performative allyship (those black squares on Instagram), current identity politics and abuse of the Black trans community.
This is a courageous and challenging event, boldly speaking truth to power and aiming to shake the nation out of its slumber. Black Lives Matter and change is now. It's time for a conscious revolution.
