Event description
Join us for the second in our livestreamed series discussion, in which we explore what it means to be a black woman in the UK today.

About this Event

Statistics show that black women are twice as likely as white women to be arrested, that unemployment rates are significantly higher for ethnic minorities, and that nearly 50% of black women in the UK do not feel their human rights are as equally protected as those of white people. What effects do these figures have in shaping female black identities and lives?

Our panel of speakers, which includes Nesrine Malik, Guardian columnist, as chair, and with Cardiff University lecturer in Digital Media Studies Dr Francesca Sobande, presenter and journalist Chanté Joseph, and author and journalist Bolu Babalola will be exploring through a black female lens how race and identity have been configured from colonialism and Empire, and how acronyms such as ‘BAME’ dilute the unique experiences of millions.

Running time: 60 minutes
