This one-off event is designed to create an open conversation about what the ‘Black student experience’ involves.
In the context of the BLM movement, growing awareness of the BAME attainment gap, and increasing vocalisation from Black student bodies about higher education experiences, this virtual panel discussion will explore the complexities of both individual and collective Black student experiences.
Hosted by Isobel Elstob (Assistant Professor in History of Art, CMVS), panellists Salema Foot (PhD researcher, University of Kingston), Kaleah Alexander (CLAS UG student) and Joshua Madojemu (CLAS UG students) will discuss key issues relating to Black student experience in higher education, before inviting the event audience to share their own thoughts, experiences, and ideas in a broader collaborative dialogue.
