Liverpool: Black History and Black Activism

Sunday 14 November 2021

Decolonising our History and Exploring Black Liberation, Led by Chantelle Lunt.

 

Join us for an online workshop with writer, entrepreneur, educator and activist Chantelle Lunt. Responding to the themes of the autumn exhibitions, Lunt will take us through a workshop that unpacks the history of Black people in Liverpool across the centuries, alongside wider contributions by Black cultural figures in the UK. Come prepared to have your preconceptions shaken and join in collective learning.

Chantelle Lunt is a writer, public speaker, educator, entrepreneur, and activist. She has a professional background in Public Services, including her work in policing and children’s social care.

Chantelle owns a mobile Juice and smoothie bar ‘The Little Green Juice Box’ and writes for independent publications and charitable organisations. Chantelle is an advocate of racial equality, having experienced racism throughout her life, particularly during her service as a Police Officer.

She is the founder of Merseyside BLM Alliance – one of the most proactive anti-racist groups in Merseyside.- and the Chair of Merseyside Alliance for Racial Equality CIC (MARE). MARE is a non-profit organisation committed to promoting racial equality, across Merseyside, through grassroots community-led work. In her role as a Freelance Educator, Chantelle works for local and national organisations, such as the Black Curriculum, to decolonise the curriculum, promote racial literacy and empower young people by engaging them in the study of Black History.
