Professor Toni Williams, the director of the new division that Journalism is in at the University of Kent, has shared an invitation to a lecture taking place online on Monday 2nd November, which is open to all students and staff:
"British Universities as Architects of Slavery and Violent Colonialism: Undoing the Harm"
About this Event
The university of Kent’s BAME Staff Network are honoured to welcome Professor Sir Hilary Beckles to deliver this year’s Race Equality Lecture 2020. In this exclusive thought-provoking lecture, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles, will excavate the genealogy of systemic racism and the role of universities as critical partners in promoting and sustaining these heinous inequalities. The annual Race Equality Lecture is one of the University’s most challenging and insightful lectures surrounding issues of racism and social justice.
Come and hear Professor Sir Hilary Beckles discuss what Universities can do to help clear up the 'colonial mess'.
This event had been due to take place a week or so ago but connection problems to Jamaica made that impossible so the event has been re-arranged to Monday 2nd November.
