How are scholars of Black Britain addressing the many forms of erasure which Black people across the United Kingdom have faced? What does it mean to challenge a predominantly white national narrative through attention to the lives, suffering, and creative practices of Black Britons? And why is this work consequential for the way we do history now? Join us for an evening with Caroline Bressey (University College, London), Kennetta Hammond Perry (Northwestern University), and Rochelle Sennet (University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign) as they share their research on Black Britons in a variety of media.
