Decolonising MLAC reading group (Black History Month event) – Afropean, Johny Pitts

21st October 2020, 16:00, via Zoom

Sarah Budasz and Cerise Jackson

We are launching the Decolonising MLAC Reading Group, on Wednesday the 21st of October at 4pm with a Black History Month session. We will be reading excerpts from Afropean: Notes from Black Europe by Johny Pitts. We will read the section 'Prologue: Sheffield' and the first part of Paris 'A tour of Black Paris'. (Email us if you need access to the text).

This event will be held over Zoom where there will be a reading followed by critical discussion. Please read up and get some thoughts together before the Reading Group so that we can be as productive as possible.

This event is open to non-university participants via registration here.

Registration will close midday Wednesday 21 October and a link to join the event will be sent out to those registered shortly before the event.
