On Monday 22nd June, from 11 am onwards, we will hold 6 talks on our Facebook page regarding the Black Lives Matter Movement, providing cultural and historical context to the current racial issues in the US and the UK as well as providing resources on how to educate ourselves.
Our speakers range from student activists, to professors at Warwick who specialise in the history of racism in the US and UK.
