Black History Month Lecture with Professor David Olusoga OBE

The University’s Creative Manchester presents a lecture with award-winning writer, historian and broadcaster, Professor David Olusoga OBE, in celebration of Black History Month.

David Olusoga is Professor of Public History at The University of Manchester, specialising in the British Empire and how different communities experience its lasting effects in modern society.

Awarded an OBE in 2019 for his services to history and community integration, David has presented several historical television programmes on the BBC. These programmes include Civilisations, Black and British, Our NHS: A Hidden History, A House Through Time and the BAFTA award-winning Britain’s Forgotten Slave Owners.

On 10 October, David will host a lecture exploring what it means to be Black and British and the role of Black History today. With his recent book, Black and British: A Short, Essential History, being published for children to better understand the relationship between Britain and Empire, this event would be particularly insightful for those in school years 7-11 and anyone older.
