A Brief History of Key Moments and Issues in the Black British Civil Rights Movement with Dr. Beverley Bryan

Dr. Bryan was a founder member of the Brixton Black Women’s Group and the Organisation of Women of African and Asian Descent (OWAAD); a Saturday school organiser; a mainstream primary school teacher who pioneered Black history teaching in her classroom in the 1970s; and a member of the British Black Panther Movement.

She is co-author of the classic book Heart of the Race: Black Women’s Lives in Britain (1985), which detailed the collective experiences of ordinary Black women; their relationship to the British state throughout its long history of slavery, empire and colonialism; and their fight for equality from post-war up to 1980s Britain.

The lecture will be followed by an extract of a new work by classical composer Philip Herbert entitled Siren Calls to an Illusive Journey, commissioned by Serendipity in recognition and celebration of the Windrush Generation.

Tickets £10
