STEPHEN LAWRENCE RESEARCH CENTRE: LET’S TALK ABOUT IT! RACE, GENDER AND MEDIA REPRESENTATION

THURSDAY 29 OCTOBER 4.30PM-5.30PM

Centred against a backdrop of racial tensions, systematic discriminations and global activism, The Exchange will host a panel-led discussion to explore issues of race and black masculinity within the media.

The panel will identify constructions of negative Black typologies and the impact such characterisations have on the Black male psyche. We will explore the impact and legacies of Blackness on screen and celebrate the pioneers who continue to place race at the forefront of this generation.
