Event Description

For too long, contemporary history has largely neglected to tell the stories of black women who helped shape the world as we know it today. During her talk, Kim will take you on a journey through our past - starting from before enslavement, moving through to the colonial period and beyond - to shine a light on a selection of individuals who made history in their own right. Kim will analyse the motivations and actions of these women and explain how and why they achieved what they did. The talk aims to promote an inclusive telling of World History, challenging the mainstream approach that often erases black women from the historical narrative. Our speaker Kim Sheldon a renowned cultural historian,  gives Black History talks at events and conferences all over the world. Kim is an official African and Caribbean Heritage guide at the V&A museum, London, and has participated in their lunch times lecture programmes and co-curator for the Look We Here: Curating the Caribbean Display. Her written work is inspired by key historical events , specifically those concerned with Black History. Kim also facilitates Writing for Well-being Courses and is a member of Lapidus (Words for Wellbeing Organisation) and NAWE (National Association for Writers in Education).
