Writing Black histories, telling Black stories

Virtual Branch Film

Published: 12th March 2021

In February 2021 we were delighted to continue the HA Virtual Branch with Stephen Bourne, author of a number of books including Black Poppies: Britain’s Black Community and the Great War and Black in the British Frame: The Black Experience in British Film and Television. In 2017 South Bank University awarded Stephen an Honorary Fellowship for his work on diversity. In this session Bourne discussed his experiences of writing Black British histories and the real life stories and figures he drew inspiration from.
