Launching the University’s celebration of Black History Month, 'What's the future for Black History Month?' will be a panel-based debate and question-and-answer session in conjunction with The Drum, the Birmingham-based national centre for Black British arts and culture. With video footage and photographs serving as a back-drop to the discussion, the panel will consider how Black History Month has been celebrated in the UK and will explore its past, present and future. Questions from the audience are welcomed.
An informal reception in the Muirhead foyer will follow the discussion.
Panellists: Rita McLean (museums and heritage consultant); Izzy Mohammed (Birmingham Central Library); Saima Nasar (PhD student, University of Birmingham); Joy Warmington (CEO, BRAP); Paul Warmington (Senior Lecturer, School of Education, University of Birmingham); Mukhtar Dar (The Drum).
