University of Sheffield’s Black History Month event

Event: University of Sheffield’s Black History Month event

Tuesday 18th October, 10am - 3.30pm.


As part of the University of Sheffield’s commitment to race equality and creating an inclusive campus, they are excited to bring you the following event as part of Black History Month.

Participating students will enjoy a day interacting with current students and academics through a range of activities developed to stimulate discussion and explore themes related to race and slavery in modern Britain.

The day will start with a workshop on the Model Minority Myth delivered by Dhyasa Morgan, BAME Students’ Union Officer and end with a film screening of two short videos which look at the history of racism and explore themes of racism, immigration, the abolition of slavery and anti-racism resistance followed by a Q&A panel with academics involved in this research.

This event is aimed at Y12 & Y13 students and will appeal to a broad range of subject interests.

Bookings are welcome from school groups as well as individual students. For any questions about the event, please contact Seetal Jassal: s.jassal@sheffield.ac.uk
