Event description

Description

The UKC Afro-Caribbean Society and The University of Kent Student Success Project in association with the ACS Medway and Kent Union are thrilled to host the MOBO Award winning Artist, Rapper, Poet, Historian, Academic and Activist Akala, at the University of Kent, on 9th October 2017 to deliver a lecture and interactive session.

Akala's lecture will be preceeded by live spoken word and musical performances by Kelvin + Caris as well as Esere KJ.

This will be part of the Student Success Inspirational Speakers Program and form the core of our Black History Month Events 2017 at the University.

The theme of Akala’s lecture will be “A history of Black people in Britain.”

Akala touches on race, class, sexism, history, war, hip-hop culture and what it is to live in a world one knows to be inherently unequal, yet rounds it all off not with accusations or anger but inward self-analysis. Akala believes “the only way we can ever change anything, is to look in the mirror and to find no enemy.”

Tickets for the event are free, and will be available from Wednesday 27th September 2017.

Please book quickly as places are limited.

Directions to the venue and car parking information are available on the University of Kent website

For a full list of the exciting speakers on our Inspirational Speakers Program, please see our Student Success Inspirational Speakers page.

If you have questions about the Black History Month Lecture by AKALA, please feel free to contact us as at studentsuccessproject@kent.ac.uk

We look forward to welcoming Akala to our University on the 9th October 2017.

Be there!
