English undergraduate Adesola Akerele hosts discussion of her documentary, Brotherhood

JANUARY 23, 2018, THE OCULUS, OC0.03, 19.15

English undergraduate student Adesola Akerele is hosting a premiere and panel discussion of her own documentary, Brotherhood. Funded in part by Warwick's Institute of Advanced Teaching and Learning, Brotherhood is a documentary that aims start a conversation that addresses the current narrative of the young black man. It features an organisation called the Amos Bursary (founded by Baroness Valorie Amos) which nurtures young black men and pushes them to excel as leaders. The Bursary has shaped outstanding black boys who have become pioneers in their generation. From those who have spoken in the House of Lords, to others who have developed apps, or even those who have raised money to attend Harvard University. This documentary gives a voice to boys who up until this point have not been able to share their own narratives.Through engaging in these conversations, we learn how these young black men manoeuvre themselves in a society that works against them.

 

Following the screening. There will be a panel discussion regarding the film and about how to positively encourage the progression of young black people in society. We will also discuss what steps can be taken to essentially re- write the narrative of the young black person in the UK.
