90. THIS IS NOT AMERICA: WHY BLACK LIVES IN BRITAIN MATTER
Tomiwa Owolade, James Marriot
Friday 28th June 18:15 (60 Min)
Stove Tent by Viking
Across the West, racial injustice has become one of the most divisive issues of our age. In the rush to address inequality and prejudice, and to understand concerns around identity, immigration and colonial history, Britain has followed the lead of the world's dominant power: America. We judge ourselves by America's standards, absorb its arguments and follow its agenda. But what if we're looking in the wrong place? Journalist and author Tomiwa Owolade presents a bold new framework for understanding race in Britain today by arguing that we must acknowledge the specific history, challenges and achievements of black populations in Britain, rather than viewing things through the prism of American ideas.
