Description

Black British Intellectuals & Education: Multiculturalism’s hidden historyThe Centre for Research in Race and Education is pleased to announce the launch of Black British Intellectuals & Education: Multiculturalism’s hidden history, the new book by Paul Warmington, CRRE’s Deputy Director.

Guest speakers will include Professor Gus John and Dr Nicola Rollock 

Paul has worked in the field of education and social justice for more than 25 years, in further and in higher education. His research on race, education and social justice is internationally known. This, his latest book, has been praised in the USA and the UK. 

Black British Intellectuals and Education explores:

  • early black British intellectual life, from the slave narratives to the early twentieth century anti-colonial movements
  • how African-Caribbean and Asian communities organized against educational inequalities in the post-Windrush era of the 1950s and 60s 
  • how black intellectuals and activists developed radical critiques of education and structural racism in the 1970s, 80s and 90s 
  • the influence of multiculturalism, cultural studies and black feminism 
  • current developments in black British educational work, including ‘post-racial’ approaches, Critical Race Theory and black social conservatism.
