Black History Month Lecture

10 October

Simukai Chigudu previews a chapter from the book he is currently writing, When Will We Be Free? Living in the Shadow of Empire and the Struggle for Decolonisation. The book is a work of literary nonfiction that combines memoir, political history and cultural criticism. Chigudu interweaves his personal and family story with the history of Africa’s anti-colonial struggles from the 1950s to the present, with the hopes and frustrations of African independence, and with Britain’s public whitewashing of its colonial history in order to provide an intimate and nuanced account of colonization not merely as a historical or political phenomenon but as something that inescapably affects a person’s heart and mind, a person’s sense of identity and home—and he investigates what it would mean to be truly free of it.

Why race equity is a Higher Education emergency

18 October

This Black History Month, Oxford Brookes are hosting a talk which invites and challenges us to consider Higher Education through a racial lens. Hosted by Natalia-Nana Lester-Bush, this lecture will offer a considered critique of how race and racism interact with some of the most pressing challenges and opportunities of the Higher Education experience. We will explore why, in a time of mass economic and educational crisis, race is the issue University staff, students and members of the wider Oxford community should be engaging with, and how white colleagues can – and should – be empowered and motivated to lead as allies to contribute to understanding and addressing the complex challenges the sector faces.
