The Art of Racial Justice: Moving Forward or Standing Still?

Nicola Rollock, Professor of Social Policy & Race at King’s College London, reflects on the landscape of racial justice in the years following the murder of George Floyd.

In particular, she explores how institutional declarations of change often obscure racial failings, in the interests of good public relations and remaining ‘on trend’, in ways we often fail to recognise.

Following the lecture, there will be an opportunity to purchase a signed copy of Professor Nicola Rollock‘s critically acclaimed book, The Racial Code – Tales of Resistance and Survival: ‘A powerful, salient and gracefully written study of the corrosive dynamics of race in Britain from a trusted voice on the subject. We can all benefit from reading it.‘ Diana Evans

Professor Rollock is a member of the Wellcome Trust’s Diversity & Inclusion Steering Group and Specialist Adviser to the Home Affairs’ Select Committee’s ‘Macpherson 22 Years On’ Inquiry. She has written for the Guardian, the FT and Vogue and she appeared as an expert contributor in the Bafta-winning Channel 4 documentary ‘The School That Tried To End Racism’.

Presented by the Bernie Grant Trust in partnership with Bernie Grant Arts Centre.
