Black History Month

Thursday 30th October

 12.30 -2.30pm

Frederick Lanchester Building, Room 209

Let’s talk about Black Men

 In the UK there is a rich tradition of community, cultural and political activism within Black communities around issues associated with mental health, criminal justice and housing. This has produced a range of campaigns and initiatives geared toward meeting people’s immediate needs, changing how services respond to the needs of Black communities and exposing injustice, exploitation and prejudice.

In the second of “Community and Resistance” seminar series, the focus is on Black men’s experiences of mental health, criminal justice and housing.

The seminar brings together community-oriented researchers within the academy. A key focus of the seminar is to share how researching as ‘insiders’ provides valuable insights about the realities of the lives of Black communities, limitations of institutional responses and ways of working toward change.

Speakers at the event are:

Paul Grant, University of Wolverhampton – From resilience to rebellion: mental health, communities and austerity

Geraldine Brown, Coventry University – It’s my home: Tenancy failure amongst Black men

Dr Martin Glynn, University of Wolverhampton – Black men, Invisibility and Crime: Towards a Critical Race Theory of Desistance

There is no charge to attend the seminar, refreshments will be provided and it is open to all

To reserve a place please email l.carson@coventry.ac.uk
