African, Not Black History: Arguments for “African”

What: Institute of Commonwealth Studies, in conjunction with the Black & Asian Studies Association, present Black and Asian Britain seminars: African, Not Black History: Arguments for “African”

“Black” in Britain used to be a “political colour of alliances”, but now whom does it represent? Should we not use “African”? Kwaku, a history consultant and community activist, will focus on the issue of African identity. Presentation is preceded by the screening of the short-ish version of ‘The African Or Black Question’ guerilla documentary and ends with a Q&A.

Kwaku, co-ordinator of The African Or Black Question (TAOBQ) campaign, is the founder of BritishBlackMusic.com/Black Music Congress, which highlights black music with a British bias, music industry issues and education, and offers a forum for debating and networking; and a pathway to music industry education.

When: Tuesday, 29 May 2012, 6-7.30pm

Where: Senate House (room tbc), University of London, 32 Russell Square, London WC1B 5DN (Euston Square or Russell Square tube)

Cost: Free
