As part of Black History Month 2017, York St John School of Humanities, Religion and Philosophy is excited to present Black History Month and the Transatlantic Imagination, an afternoon of personal responses to Black cultural history. Members of academic staff will introduce the transatlantic moments, people, and events that impacted on black identities. Come and hear about Miles Davis, learn about the lives of Lancashire cotton workers and how they contributed to the North’s success in the American Civil War, and think about Marvel comics and issues of diversity
There will be refreshments served in De Grey lecture theatre from 12.30pm, so please do come and join us for what should be an exciting and stimulating event. Tickets are FREE.
