Professor Farah Karim-Cooper will be joined by novelist and academic Preti Taneja, Historian and President of the Royal Historical Society, Margot Finn and actor and director Elliot Barnes-Worrell to discuss British history, the colonial past, racial identity and how best to tell our collective stories.
To mark International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition on 23 August, this panel discussion focuses on how we talk about history in Britain. It will address where we are now, how we got here and the part we have to play in the next chapter.
What does it mean to grow up in Britain as a person of the global majority and not be taught in school your relationship to the history of your country? How do we talk about this past? How should novels, theatre, film and TV represent this past?
