Part II in a three-part series called The Rights and Justice City: Hope, History and Being Humane, this public dialogue tackles an important issue in an open forum. Nottingham has a long and vibrant black history, and is home to the Nottingham Black Archives, the Nottingham Black History Society and the project Slave Trade Legacies: The Colour of Money (a National Lottery Heritage Award finalist), among other black history groups and projects. But what is the relationship between past, present and future in Nottingham? Is Nottingham’s black past a prologue for contemporary social justice movements? Does the city’s history contain a usable past for today? Join us for performances and discussion, with local experts and visiting guests.
Hosted by the Research Priority Area in Rights and Justice (University of Nottingham), the Centre for Research in Race and Rights (University of Nottingham), Nottingham Black History Society and Nottingham Contemporary Public Programmes, in collaboration with Journey to Justice: Nottingham.
This event is part of the Being Human festival - the UK’s only national festival of the humanities. As our festival events are free, not everyone who asks for tickets come to our events. To make sure we have a full house, we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first-come-first-served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
