Two weeks after International Women’s Day, BTWSC/African Histories Revisited in association with Support Our Women, provides a forum for highlighting and celebrating UK’s African women activists and organisations over the decades.
The Zoom event kicks off with the screening of the improved and updated 100 minute mashup video* by history consultant Kwaku, which uses original and found material, plus academic and community history resources. It pulls together a history that stretches past the usual 70s/80s Black Women Movement and London-centric narratives.
Attendees are advised to join in good time, as the screening will begin promptly at 6.15pm. Community activist Nana Asante will moderate the post-screening discussion. Expect to hear from some of those who are part of this history.
