Update - Sept 23
Since the launch of Black History Conversations in October 2020 - in Covid lockdown times - and as Black Lives Matter protests were seen around the world - we have mananged to clock up well over 100 sessions. We have been joined by BLM movers and shakers around the world; academics sharing their latest research; authors sharing their latest work and we have also kept up with a number of community research projects.
All these sessions have been recorded by Simon Ferrigno, who has also managed several interesting Black History projects with Belong Nottingham - check out: - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmxWaGBmXcY_CV_9G6ie7wA
and links can be found on this site - somewhere! (we are still at work on preparing BHC resource website - 'Unlocking Black History').
BHC Season 10 will continue in the same pattern - perhaps evolving to create podcasts and some more formal events etc.
These weekly Zoom sessions have enabled us to explore a wide range of Black History stories around the world, as well as the achievements and challenges faced by Black people.
Many thanks to every one who has contributed, all on a voluntary basis - an amazing achievement.
We continued in 2023 not only to review the past BHC Seasons, but to continue to hear of successes and scandals ...
British Culture Secretary recently said re 'Elgin Marbles' "Returing these would open a can of worms - we must protect 'our culture'" and went on to say British law prevents return - news items on Australian World News 12 1 23 !
Mmmm..... in August 2023 the British Museum proved they didn't even know what items they had in their 'safe care'.
And the return of stolen goods continues with countries who had lost treasured cultural items are now slowly beginning to see the return of these items, and some European and American museums must wonder what was the purpose of hoarding them in the first place.
Please let us know if you want to join a session to share a story or research, or just sign in if you want to join in Black History Conversations sessions.
