Penny Lectures African American Activism in Nottingham

Please join Nottingham Contemporary and PhD student Hannah-Rose Murray who will discuss the legacy of African American activism in Nottingham. Hannah-Rose will discuss famous figures such as Frederick Douglass, who visited Nottingham in 1846, to William and Ellen Craft who organised a meeting in the city in 1851, and Josiah Henson, who spoke about his memories of slavery in 1876.

 Ending Slavery: Strategies for Contemporary Global       Abolition

An interdisciplinary approach to social justice

We are a leading centre for the study of race and rights, with a focus on research and public engagement that challenges all forms of racism, discrimination and rights violation.

Believing that intellectual engagement is key to developing new forms of social action and that scholars have a role to play in social justice, we work with local, national and international partners to produce policy-relevant research and impact in the areas of race, rights, and social justice.
