MMF Unite is a platform for music managers and the wider music industry to have an open conversation about racism and discrimination

About this Event

MMF Unite is a series of events running monthly at the MMF beginning on Wednesday 29th July at 6:00pm. Welcome to all, MMF Unite is seeking to create an educational and motivating environment for music managers and the wider music industry to have open conversations about racism and other kinds of discrimination. We will explore how we can collectively address these injustices and influence change, aided by input from important guest speakers we all need to hear from.

Each Unite event will be shaped by the discussions and learning from the previous one. We encourage attendees to try to come all 6 events and to join us on this journey.

For our first event we will be joined by Black Historian Tony Warner, Director of Black History Walks. Since 2007 Black History Walks have provided monthly talks, films and educational walking, bus and river tours on London's 2000 years of African history. Conde Nast Traveller magazine listed BHW in the top 15 walks in London and they have been featured on BBC, Channel 4 and CNN

Tony Warner will deliver a talk on racial justice in UK society, followed by a group discussion lead by MMF Vice Chair Kwame Kwaten, exploring some of the matters raised by Warner and how it connects with the current Black Lives Matter Movement, #TheShowMustBePaused, #BlackoutTuesday and the wider history of racism in the music industry.
