Exploring The Legacies Of Dame Jocelyn Barrow And Other Inspirational British African Women

A free, family-friendly event.

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. Kwaku is an author/editor of a number of books; educator specialising in black music and African British history; and the editor of the website BritishBlackMusic.com.

Attendees are encouraged not only to ask questions, but to also offer names of notable women not mentioned in either videos or presentation.

This presentation is in memory of our sheroes, particularly Dame Jocelyn Barrow, Jessica Huntley, Olive Morris, Cecile Nobrega and Claudia Jones.
