Facing the Future – Black Lives Matter: Dialogue & Debate

An interactive Dialogue & Debate webinar from Cumberland Lodge, streamed live on Thursday 16 July 2020 at 11am

Resource type: Webinar

This is the final webinar in our four-part mini-series on issues of race and justice, live-streamed on Thursday 16 July 2020, at 11am. This webinar explores facing the future, in a world changed by the Black Lives Matter protests. It is a part of the regular series of Dialogue & Debate webinars from Cumberland Lodge.

Cumberland Lodge trustee and Independent Non-Executive Director of Daily Mail and General Trust plc, JP Rangaswami chairs the discussiuon, with guest panellists:

  • Heather Hatton – PhD student at the History Department of the University of Hull and Cumberland Lodge Fellow
  • Sunder Katwala – Director, British Future
  • Wilf Sullivan – Race Equality Officer, Trades Union Congress (TUC)

The debate on ethnic inequality and injustice has ebbed and flowed for decades. In recent weeks, however, the conversation has escalated into mainstream media as a cross-societal issue. Black Lives Matter, and connected protest in the UK, have thrown up urgent conversations across government, policing, education, business and the third sector.

This discussion draws on the three previous discussions in this series, to identify key areas where action needs to be taken, and what that action should be, to address the persistence of racism, structural inequality and racial discrimination in the UK.
