This two-hour online public conversation with four prominent British and Latin American anti-racist artists-activists will discuss how they use their work to counter racism. The legacies of colonialism and slavery and the persistence of structural racism are prominent in current public debate and this event will contribute by exploring the often side-lined similarities between the two regions, with a focus on cultural production. Suggested participants: Akala and Sonia Boyce (UK); Ashanti Dinah and Jaider Esbell (Latin America). The event will be moderated by Prof Peter Wade (UoM Social Anthropology), director of the AHRC/ESRC-funded project, Cultures of Anti-Racism in Latin America.
