[Event] UK Premiere: The Importance of Black History – October 23rd @ King’s Place
As part of Islington’s Black History Month programme, the UK Premiere of Nosa Igbinedion’s ‘The Importance of Black History’ will be screened at King’s Place at the end of October.
Nosa Igbinedion notes “BLACK history comprises the history of multiple nations, people and ethnicities so how can it be comprised into one month and under the umbrella BLACK.” So is Black History really World History? And if so should school curriculums be more inclusive to reflect the globalised world and multicultural society we live in today?
Featuring Hakim Adi, Tony Warner and many more, this film seeks to break down barriers, evoke meaningful discussion, and be used as an educational resource and discussion tool for schools and the wider community.
This film will be followed by a live debate, featuring the young people who star in the film as well as leaders in education, chaired by special surprise guest. This will be a filmed event and welcomes contribution from the audience.
