Being Black, Brown and British

Sunday, 27 October

October is Black History Month - a time of the year which celebrates and acknowledges black British history and identity. But in the UK today, South Asians are the largest ethnic minority demographic. Should there be a South Asian History Month too? Or - as it what suggested last year - should October be Diversity History Month? What about the term 'people of colour'? How often do all ethnic minorities fit into the same group? Mobeen Azhar and Reece Parkinson join forces with a panel of guests to explore the relationship between the South Asian and black community. Tobi Kyeremateng is a producer and theatre director. She identifies as Ghanaian and Nigerian. Leanne Levers is a Sri Lankan and Cuban political scientist. Blazer Boccle is a rapper. His heritage is Jamaican and Pakistani. Faima Bakar is British-Bangladeshi journalist.
