100 Great Black Britons with Patrick Vernon and Angelina Osborne

Thursday 12 November, 7pm.

Patrick Vernon’s landmark 100 Great Black Britons campaign of 2003 was one of the most successful movements to focus on the role of people of African and Caribbean descent in British history and counter the exclusion of the Black British community from the mainstream popular conception of ‘Britishness’, despite Black people having lived in Britain for over a thousand years.

As a result, a number of Black historical figures were included on the national school curriculum and had statues and memorials erected and blue plaques put up in their honour. Now, with this book, Patrick and Angelina Osborne have relaunched the campaign to include new role models and previously little-known historical figures, often overlooked or dismissed. Join them to discuss the need to correct the history taught and to grow a knowledge for so long hidden.
