Putting race back on the agenda - Book NOW!

Yasmin100x100On 26th November Yasmin Alibhai-Brown will discuss the need to put race back on the political and public agenda and consider why, more broadly, there is a lack of strong leadership within the field of race. Her talk will examine why areas such as feminism or environmentalism are characterized by strong leadership, undaunted activism and supportive voices yet the area of race is lacking in comparison.

In this, the second Annual CRRE Lecture at Universaty of Birmingham, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown will consider how this has happened and, crucially, what must be done to address this.
