For Black History Month we are screening Emitaï (1971), by renowned Senegalese director Ousmane Sembène.

The screening will be accompanied by a short talk contextualising the film within the economic history of West Africa.   

Afterwards we will host an inter-disciplinary social for students and staff of African heritage. The venue is the Economic History Common Room, starting approximately 7.30-8pm.

This social is an opportunity for African heritage students and staff to come together and discuss the importance of Black and African scholarship within economic history and other disciplines, as well as build an academic and support network across all levels of the School.
