The Conference is to address issues regarding racism raised by a number of contributors when BTWSC/AHR was researching African British history for the ‘Look How Far We’ve Come: Racism, The Bristol Bus Boycott, Black History Month, The Black Sections, And Where Are We In Today’s Union Jack?’ book.
The Conference will provide a forum for discussing issues pertaining to racism, highlight what stakeholders are doing about racism, and how racism can be brought back on the agenda. As it is meant to be a “towards solutions” Conference, the presentations, workshops and plenary session will focus on strategies to combat racism, and not just dwell on the problems.
Targeted stakeholders deliberately form a wide constituency, ranging from individuals, community leaders, elected representatives, community and voluntary organisations, trade unionists, educational institutions, historians, students, academics, and officers whose remit include implementing Equality policy, which may also fall under umbrella terms such as Inclusion, Integration, Diversity, or Multiculturalism.
