LECTURER: Who Stole All The Black Women from Britain - Queen Nzingha lectures

Here in the UK, the visibility of Black women in representations of mainstream Black British culture is such that you might be forgiven for thinking we are an endangered species. The near erasure of Black British women from this terrain, which is in the main dominated by black men and white women, is rarely commented upon, despite its prominence. What, asks sociologist Emma Dabiri, is actually going on here?

 

In this illustrated Queen Nzingha  talk we will unpack some of the processes wherein Black British women are rendered invisible, and the ways in which this can be read as part of what Ms Dabiri identifies as a three tiered assault on Black British life.
