T0 mark Black History Month in October, the WEA is partnering with Serendipity Arts to run a series of four discussions, which will start with a keynote speaker. The four sessions are:

BLACK AND GOLD – SPORT AND THE OLYMPICS

The first session will explore the role and politics of Black sports people and athletes in Britain and internationally. Is Black success due to the fact of a level playing field?

Leicester organiser Karen Chouhan will deliver a thought provoking presentation on why the Olympics raise every equality issue you could ever think of!

BLACK HEARTS, BLACK MINDS

The second session examines social and political differences in health and well-being will be discussed with some key health professionals. Why, how and what can be done?

Ivan Browne, Public Health lead at Leicester City Council will discuss some startling differences between ethnic groups in mental and physical health.

HOODIES, HIJABS AND ANORAKS

This session will discuss dress as a marker of identity and controversy. Are we really so shallow as to discriminate on the bases of what people wear?

Karen Chouhan presenting again – for those attending please wear some wild and wonderful clothes!

WAITING IN THE WINGS – BRINGING BLACK DANCE TO CENTRE STAGE

The final session will examine the untold stories of Black Dance in the UK and internationally, and the need to document the African Caribbean dance practitioners and aesthetics, support and platform their work.

Pawlet Brookes, Director of Serendipity will speak on this subject from her many years of experience and her latest publication on Black Women in Dance.
