Film Screening: Black Sheep

13 Sep 2019

The true story of Cornelius Walker, for whom everything changed on 27 November 2000 when Damilola Taylor was killed.

Taylor was 11 – the same age as Walker. He lived five minutes away, and he had the same colour skin.

When Walker’s mother moved their family out of London, Walker suddenly found himself living on a white estate run by a white gang.

Black Sheep blurs the boundaries between documentary and fiction to pose difficult, but highly topical questions about race and identity: who decides what makes us who we are? And what compromises are we prepared to make in order to fit in?

This, the largest ever screening of this multi-award-winning, Oscar-nominated documentary, includes a post-screen discussion – a chance to explore how its themes relates to us and how we can impact race, identity and belonging.

This event is presented in association with Indaba X.
