10:30am to 3pm, 24 February 2023, BFI Southbank

The British Film Institute holds a rich archive of films relating to Black British history. Many of the films are explicitly about the Black experience in 20th century Britain, others capture the Black presence in and amongst other elements of British life. While some of the films confirm our understanding, many are a surprising and illuminating representation of real life.

Ideal for teachers and students of history, this event uses a wealth of film from the BFI Archive to explore recordings of lived experience in 20th century Britain and stories of migration.

We are also excited to welcome a leading thinker for a discussion on relevant themes, plus a Q&A.
