Seyi Rhodes, reporter for Channel 4's critically-acclaimed series 'Unreported World' and 'Dispatches', presents this special event with extracts from his television work as part of Black History Month. Originally from South London, Seyi spent parts of his childhood living in Nigeria and Spain - he went to school in Bath and university in Bristol. He has worked in TV for more than a decade, reporting from danger zones all over the world, from favelas in Brazil and Guatemala to war zones in Ivory Coast and Libya. He has won a mental health media award and been nominated for an Amnesty Award.
The event is organised together with Black History Month Cheltenham, a partnership between Cheltenham Borough Council, the African Community Foundation, and Cheltenham West End Partnership.
He will be introduced by Dr Christian O’Connell, author and Senior Lecturer in American History at the University of Gloucestershire.
Black History Month in Gloucestershire is supported by the University of Gloucestershire, Cheltenham Borough Council and the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gloucestershire.
