Event description
YHP are excited to announce the launch of our documentary series, showcasing the history of African women and Britain's health service

About this event

Since 2018, members of the Young Historians Project have been engaged in a groundbreaking research project, to recover the hidden history of continental African women and the British health service in the 20th century. We have interviewed 36 African women health workers, conducted extensive archive research, and worked hard as a team to convert these materials into accessible learning resources, to be utilised by anyone interested in learning more about this important history.

During this event we will be screening the 7th, 8th and 9th episodes from our documentary series - A Hidden History: African women and the British health service. The first episode to be screened during this event is 'Activism', which will explore the experiences of African women health workers who have been engaged in activism to create positive change.

Next, our 'Community and Identity' episode will highlight how African women health workers have found a sense of community, and their thoughts on the importance of celebrating African identity and heritage in Britain.

Then, our 'Advice to Young People' episode will provide an uplifting close, showcasing messages of advice from African women health workers, to today's young generation.

This event will also feature a Q&A with YHP film makers who produced these two episodes, and some of the interviewees who have been featured.
