Windrush Day Online Lecture 2021 with Dr Beverley Bryan

Following the success of the inaugural Windrush Day Lecture in 2020, Serendipity are delighted to present the 2021 lecture by Dr Beverley Bryan as she explores A Brief History of Key Moments and Issues in the Black British Civil Rights Movement.

Dr Bryan was a founder member of the Brixton Black Women's Group and the Organisation of Women of African and Asian Descent (OWAAD); a Saturday school organiser; a mainstream primary school teacher who pioneered Black history teaching in her classroom in the 1970s; and a member of the British Black Panther Movement.

She is co-author of the classic book Heart of the Race: Black Women's Lives in Britain (1985) which detailed the collective experiences of ordinary Black women; their relationship to the British state throughout its long history of slavery, empire and colonialism; and their fight for equality from post-war up to 1980s Britain.

A lifelong educator, Beverley Bryan retired as Professor of Language Education from the University of the West Indies, Jamaica, where she now lives – in the country of her birth!

The lecture will be followed by an extract of a new work by classical composer Philip Herbert entitled Siren Calls to an Illusive Journey, commissioned by Serendipity in recognition and celebration of the Windrush Generation.

This online lecture will be streamed via zoom the presenters will be seen but audiences will not be visible. The Zoom link will be sent 1 hour before the start and it will then be available for 48 hours after going live. Captioning will be available.
