Decolonising our History and Exploring Black Liberation, Led by Chantelle Lunt

14 November 2021

Join us for an online workshop with writer, entrepreneur, educator and activist Chantelle Lunt. Responding to the themes of the autumn exhibitions, Lunt will take us through a workshop that unpacks the history of Black people in Liverpool across the centuries, alongside wider contributions by Black cultural figures in the UK. Come prepared to have your preconceptions shaken and join in collective learning.
