What Should Black History Month Mean To Mixed-Race Britons

Thursday 14 October 2021

Join British journalist Stephen Bush on what Black History Month should mean to Mixed-Race Britons.


As part of Black History Month the University of Wolverhampton is pleased to present a talk with British journalist Stephen Bush.

The fastest growing ethnicity in Britain is those who are mixed-race or of dual heritage. The proportion of Britons who were mixed-race nearly doubled between 2001 and 2011, and with over 3% of all children being born in Britain being mixed-race, a similar increase is expected when the results of this year’s census are announced. In this talk Stephen Bush, the Political Editor of the New Statesman, will discuss what he feels Black History Month should mean to Mixed-Raced Britons.

Stephen Bush is one of Britain’s leading political journalists, leading the New Statesman’s political team since 2018. His work has also appeared in The Times, Guardian, Financial Times, and Independent. He also makes regular appearances on the BBC and SKY NEWS. He recently chaired the Board of Deputies of British Jews’s groundbreaking investigation into how the Jewish community could better support Jewish people who are People of Colour.
