Oral history in dialogue – Southall Black Sisters

Thursday 12th May

Hannana Siddiqui will be talking about Southall Black Sisters’ approach to remembering the past with Amy Tooth Murphy, Oral History Society


In a spirit of openness to inclusivity and critical reflection on its own record, the Oral History Society is launching a series of joint meetings with Black and minority ethnic (BME) organisations and individuals who share an interest in researching and understanding the past through the memories of people who lived it. The Society’s aim is to learn from the research activities of BME organisations and individuals and the dissemination of what they find, acknowledging that this may raise difficult issues. Through such dialogues the Society aims to acquire greater awareness and appreciation of UK BME history and its historians and to be inclusive of this through its activities.

The OHS is delighted to be able to announce that the first of these dialogues will be with Southall Black Sisters on Thursday 12 May, by Zoom (access via Eventbrite) between 18.00 and 20.00.

Dr Hannana Siddiqui from Southall Black Sisters will be talking about her organisation’s approach to remembering the past with Dr Amy Tooth Murphy of the Oral History Society.

All are welcome to the dialogue and to join in with their own contributions and experiences.
