This Zoom online and interactive session is led by history consultant Kwaku. He will through a screening of the ‘What They Said I Should Be: The Story of African British Female Movers & Shakers’ DVD and other film footage, highlight the work of a number of British African women, and give the audience an opportunity to explore their legacies or on-going contributions.
