Union of Kingston Students have put together a great series of events for Black History Month: www.kingstonstudents.net/bhm2020
Members might be particularly interested in :
- Wednesday 21 October, 6pm – 8pm – Covid-19 vs. the BLM movement with Adam Elliot Cooper
- Thursday 22 October, 6pm – 8pm – Question time – does Kingston University take racism seriously?

There are also BHM events organised by UCU:
The Phenomenal Women photography exhibition will be on public display at the Southbank Centre from 10th October. The project builds on Dr Nicola Rollock’s 2019 report for UCU which showed the barriers faced by black women as they work to navigate their way through higher education.
Two webinars on anti-racism this month –
- The first will be on ‘systemic racism and how to survive it’ (14 October 5.00-6.30pm) and features contributors from sister unions the NASUWT and the NEU.
- The second is a follow-up to the webinar on decolonising and is entitled ‘decolonising your workplace’ (21 October 1.00-2.00pm).
More details and links/information will be available on the UCU website: Black History Month
