About this Event
Being black in rural spaces in partnership with My Life My Say
This event will bring together a range of black experts, professional and young people to explore what it means to be black in rural britain. Our panel will be sharing their experiences, highlighting what change can and needs to be made whilst highlighting resources and organisations who have already started the journey of supporting young and black people within these areas.
Following the impact of COVID-19 on BAME people across the world, the echoes of tragedies such Windrush and Grenfell and culminating in the murder of George Floyd in the US, we launched the #YoungAndBlack campaign alongside, My Life My Say and The Diana Award, and activist, Jermain Jackman. The #YoungAndBlack campaign is a safe space to share, listen and learn from the experiences of young Black people.
