By on March 1, 2019

Hosted by the Department of Criminology for Women’s History Month, this one off lecture presents visual and biographical details of Black women from the UK and around the world who have resisted colonialism and racism.

Women do not get the historical credit they deserve; this interactive presentation will give the audience video and documentary evidence of the who, what and why of over 40 female fighters who used any means necessary to fight for equallity.

Women include:
Dora Akunyili, Dame Jocelyn Barrow, Olive Morris, Anne Cools, Edna Ismail, Althea Gibson and more. We will cover 400 years of such international female resisters who used pistols, pens and placards. Bring notepad and pen and be on time.

The event 400 Years of Black Women Resistance Leaders will be held at Middlesex University School of Law on Thursday 7th March 2019.
