This webinar is the first in a four-part mini-series on issues of race and justice in policing, education, the culture sector and wider society, as part of the regular series of Dialogue & Debate webinars from Cumberland Lodge.
We will be joined by guest panellists:
- Dexter Dias QC, Human Rights Lawyer
- Dr Suhraiya Jivraj - Reader in Law and Social Justice
- Kerrin Wilson, Assistant Chief Constable for Lincolnshire
The discussion is presented by our Chief Executive, Canon Dr Ed Newell.
What will we be discussing?
Over the course of a fortnight, we will be convening four webinars that each draw on key findings and recommendations from our recent and forthcoming Cumberland Lodge Reports. In this first of our four Black Lives Matter webinars, we draw on insights and recommendations from the Cumberland Lodge Report on Race in Britain: Inequality, Identities & Belonging, published last autumn.
Debates on racial inequality, policing and Britain's colonial past have escalated during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Black Lives Matter movement has captured widespread support and triggered a broader debate on structural inequalities and racial discrimination.
We will discuss what Black Lives Matter means to our panellists, both personally and professionally, and whether this campaign could be a turning-point in the fight to combat racism, discrimination and injustice.
