Description

Come along to an illustrated talk by English historian and BBC broadcaster, Prof. Carl Chinn about the diverse heritage of Birmingham’s people...

A city of change, adaptation and inventiveness, Birmingham’s growth has not been enabled by providential physical or geographical features. Landlocked in the middle of England, it was not defensive site, whilst it has neither a navigable river nor deposits of coal or iron ore. Instead Birmingham has relied upon the talents of its people and upon the relationships they formed for its expansion into a major city. So who are these people, where have they come from, and why did they come here? Most crucially what do they have in common, and how have they transformed Birmingham into one of Britain’s most diverse, dynamic and exciting twenty-first century cities and in so doing ensured that the many peoples of Birmingham are brought together by their unity in all belonging to Birmingham?

Please arrive at 6pm for a 6:30pm start.

This talk is part of Birmingham Heritage Week 2017 (http://birminghamheritageweek.co.uk/) We look forward to seeng you!
