Last year was the 30th anniversary of Black History Month in the UK, and we’re now in a time of, on the one hand, growing movements on decolonising curricula, mobilising the global African diaspora, and reparatory justice, and on the other hand, the resurgence of fascism in Europe. This talk will explore this subject and the implications for the Higher Education sector and Black History Month more broadly.
