8 Feb. 2023 (18:00pm GMT) - ILAS Grand Challenges Lecture Series - Keele University.
Malik Al Nasir - Keynote lecture.
The latest in a series of Grand Challenges lectures from the Institute of Liberal Arts and Sciences and brought to you in partnership with the Race Equality Lecture Series.
"As a black person growing up in a predominantly white society, there are often a range of intersectional barriers we face, particularly in education. Higher rates of child poverty, often institutionalised and systemic racism within the structures of the society, when added to the historic misconceptions of Black people, fostered through hundreds of years of disinformation – a legacy of enslavement and colonialism – result in a plethora of disadvantage. This often feeds into poorer academic outcomes, than even similarly disadvantaged white children, who do not have the added factors of race to contend with..." Malik al Nasir will explore how these barriers impact Black academia and what can be done to lift them.
