Description

By rethinking our connected and complex histories and looking again through the lens of contemporary art, tomorrow’s story can be one of repair, hope and freedom. Contributors include David Olusoga, Baroness Doreen Lawrence, Kit de Waal, Dr Anne-Marie-Imafidon, Sir David Adjaye, Leroy Logan and Professor Kehinde Andrews. By bringing together collections from across the University of Cambridge’s museums, libraries and colleges with loans from around the world, Black Atlantic: Power, People, Resistance asks new questions about Cambridge’s role in the transatlantic slave trade and looks at how objects and artworks have influenced history and perspectives. Lenny Henry and Marcus Ryder introduce an essential collection of essays arguing how and why we need to fight for Black lives to matter – not just for Black people, but for British society as a whole. We explore the politics and racism around hair, from "Black is beautiful" afros to discrimination in the workplace.

Lenny Henry and Marcus Ryder introduce an essential collection of essays arguing how and why we need to fight for Black lives to matter - not just for Black people, but for British society as a whole. This informative collection of essays and interviews reaffirms what we already knew: that the struggle for racial equality and social justice is constant; that it needs to be waged with a greater intensity and urgency than ever; that there is a need to educate a new generation of activists. Estimated to make up 22 percent of the Black British population we explore exactly why Black British disabled people’s lives matter. The killing of George Floyd by a white police officer may have taken place thousands of miles away, but his agonising cry – “I can’t breathe” – reverberated in the UK, too. With classics such as Ted Hughes's The Iron Man and award-winners including Emma Carroll's Letters from the Lighthouse, Faber Children's Books brings you the best in picture books, young reads and classics.It is clear, though, that the response to last summer’s Black Lives Matter protests must go beyond just representation. Faber Members get access to live and online author events and receive regular e-newsletters with book previews, promotional offers, articles and quizzes. Recognising Black British experience within the Black Lives Matter movement, nineteen prominent Black figures explain why Black lives should be celebrated when too often they are undervalued. Honestly there is no other podcast out there like this and which manage such delicate and challenging issues in such a human and even funny way.

Our guests talk about the reality behind the shocking stats, their own personal mental health experiences and whether living in Britain is bad for our mental health.

From Nobel Laureates Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter to theatre greats Tom Stoppard and Alan Bennett to rising stars Polly Stenham and Florian Zeller, Faber Drama presents the very best theatre has to offer. This week we discuss why Black British Hair Matters with activist Stephanie Cohen from the Halo Collective, and filmmaker Kevin Morosky. But Fitzwilliam’s generosity was only possible because of the wealth his grandfather accumulated in part through the transatlantic slave trade. We also ask if the food wider society values contains racist overtones, for example why is French cuisine regularly seen as the height of “good cooking” while West African food is rarely mentioned?

Our strength does not come from not having any weaknesses, our strength comes from overcoming them" Doreen Lawrence. The book comprises essays from 19 prominent black figures, including the historian David Olusoga, the architect David Adjaye, the Labour MP Dawn Butler and Baroness Doreen Lawrence, the mother of murdered teenager Stephen. This exhibition explores some new stories from history – stories that help us to separate fact from fiction and history from myth.So large is the political crisis to which the book is responding that some of the essays only manage to scratch the surface of their subject, while others at times feel repetitive. Too often there is “one person of colour to argue for a policy that would deny their own parents entry into the UK versus another politician of colour arguing for policies that would benefit other people of colour”.

Historic works are shown alongside modern and contemporary works by artists including Barbara Walker, Donald Locke, Alberta Whittle and Keith Piper that challenge and reflect on hidden and untold stories. The essays offer a 360-degree portrait of the black British experience, taking in health, the criminal justice system, politics, art, journalism, business and education. This week we discuss why Black British Disabled People Matter with Michelle Daley and Katouche Goll, both leading campaigners for Black disability rights for people in Britain.I am ageless in the way that people in the public eye often are frozen in time by a single event … I am also ageless because people don’t always see me as human. Home to William Golding, Sylvia Plath, Kazuo Ishiguro, Sally Rooney, Tsitsi Dangarembga, Max Porter, Ingrid Persaud, Anna Burns and Rachel Cusk, among many others, Faber is proud to publish some of the greatest novelists from the early twentieth century to today. Marcus Ryder has over twenty-five years’ experience working in television and journalism and is a leader on the issue of diversity in the media. Butler laments the smattering of black and Asian representation in overwhelmingly white institutions such as parliament, arguing that, as a result, minorities can easily be pitted against each other.
