Event description

Description

Those that do not know history are destined to repeat it.

The study of history is not just a collection of dates and facts. It is a guide we can use today, to help us navigate through life and change tomorrow. We can learn lessons from the mistakes of the past, so we do not repeat them. But also, it becomes difficult to deny humanity, to take away a person’s culture or call one person an ‘immigrant’ and the other ‘native’ if we know about history. Ignorance is a fertile ground for injustice and prejudice.

Join Onyeka, a Visiting Research Fellow at Huddersfield University and Narrative Eye as we champion historical research to find the missing pages of history.

‘Study the past, if you intend to have a future’ (Onyeka, 2017).
