Before Windrush and Saluting our Sisters – the history and contributions of Black British Women

Thursday 5 October

Speaker: David Olusoga

In honour of Black History Month, Reed Smith’s Business Inclusion Group, the Multicultural Network (MCN), invite you to an evening of networking and celebration with special guest David Olusoga, OBE.


Reed Smith is exploring the lives and stories of Black Britons who were living in the UK before the arrival of Empire Windrush in 1948, and celebrating the crucial role that Black women have played in shaping history and inspiring change.

Discover David Olusoga’s journey and meet one of the most influential Black Britons and an internationally acclaimed expert on Black history.

Join us at Ham Yard Hotel where you hear from our own lawyers and a keynote address by David Olusoga, sharing their perspectives and thoughts as we acknowledge black resistance and honour the achievements of British Black women who are often forgotten.
