About this event

In response to the international outcry at George Floyd’s death, Lenny Henry and Marcus Ryder commissioned this collection of essays to discuss how and why we need to fight for Black lives to matter – not just for Black people but for society as a whole.

Recognising Black British experience within the Black Lives Matter movement, seventeen prominent Black figures explain why Black lives should be celebrated when too often they are undervalued. Drawing from personal experience, they stress how Black British people have unique perspectives and experiences that enrich British society and the world; how Black lives are far more interesting and important than the forces that try to limit it.

In this free online launch event, Marcus Ryder is joined by contributor Derek Bardowell to discuss issues raised in this wide-ranging and urgent anthology which highlights the vital benefits that Black Britons bring to society and the crucial importance of eradicating systemic racism.
