Wellbeing Cafe: The Past as a Future Present
Recent events in Bristol relating to Edward Colston, raised the importance of understanding and appreciating different social histories to those generally taught in British schools.
As part of Black History Month, our regular Wellbeing Cafe is hosting a discussion on how our histories shape our present and infuence our future.
The discussion will be led with an introductory talk by Ian Noah, who will use the Sierra Leone history of his family to explore the repercussions of the past and how they continue to resonate today and be relevant to the future. Following his talk, participants are invited to share their own experiences and, it is hoped, come away with a greater understanding of the importance of Black History in our everyday lives.
