Webinar with Dr Emily Zobel Marshall on Wednesday 21st October 11am to 12.30 pm.
Black History Month was started to showcase the amazing contributions of Black people and communities from across the world. In Britain, our culture has been enriched and our society has been made stronger because of the people who travelled here to build new lives in the UK, as well as the achievements and contributions of their descendants.
This year, Touchstone and Leeds Mind have come together to honour the achievements and sacrifices of people who came to our shores to build a better, more tolerant Britain but also to show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
During the month of October, we will be creating space for our Black staff to share their experiences and contributions and we will end with a webinar on the history of colonialism, led by Dr Emily Zobel Marshall, Reader in Postcolonial Literature at Leeds Beckett University on Wednesday 21st October 11am to 12.30 pm.
