To celebrate Black History Month, University College London and the New Perspectives Group will be holding a conference, which is supported by the Institute of Contemporary British Histroy.
The Conference will meet on the evening of Friday October 20th (at the Gustav Tuck Lecture Theatre, Gower Street Entrance, UCL, London WC1E 6BT) and all day on Saturday 21st October (at the Institute of Historical Research University of London, Senate House, Malet Street, London WCE1 7HU).
Winston James will give the keynote speech and contributors will include Clive Harris (Birmingham), David Killingray (Goldsmiths) Hakim Adi (Middlesex) Rosemary Mallet (KCL), Markia Sherwood (Institute of Commonwealth Studies) and Harvard Sitkoff (UNH).
The conference focuses on the History of various people of colour who migrated to the UK since the Second World War. It will attempt to rescue this history from the margins to which conventional perspectives have tended (or sought) to confine it. In that sense this is not Indian, Caribbean or African history but part of British History.
