Dec. 7 Black Music And A History Of Racism In Britain: Dec. 7 1507-Dec. 7 2020 REVAMPED

UPDATE: This is a repeat Session using a completely revamped mashup video incorporating feedback from the original presentation on Dec. 7 2020.

Music industry and history consultant Kwaku presents a video-assisted presentation mapping out a complex and surprising 500+ year history of the interaction between black music and African musicians, and racism in Britain. Based mainly on documented facts with anecdotal and assumptive asides, it covers from the wicked consequences, the surprising, the resilience, the conquering, the I-didn’t-know-that to the fancy-that, and lots more in between! An unmissable learning forum with space for you to have your say.
