Brit(ish): On Race, Identity and Belonging

Afua Hirsch
Tue 24 April 2018,

Afua Hirsch offers a personal exploration of British identity, the everyday racism that plagues our society and our troubled relationship with our history. We believe we are a nation of abolition, but forget that we are a nation of slavery. We are convinced that fairness is one of our values, but that immigration is one of our problems. How can we come to terms with our past and navigate our present? Hirsch tells the story of how and why this crisis of identity came to be, and discusses race and belonging with historian David Olusoga.
