Thursday 27 April 2023

Black on Europe

With Juliet Alexander (chair), Felix de Rooy (Zoom), Cecile Emeke, Colin Prescod and Onyekachi Wambu

Black on Europe was a landmark BBC television series produced to signal the establishment of the European single market on 1 January 1993. In 1991, Black British filmmakers Colin Prescod and Onyekachi Wambu documented the lived experiences of Black people and communities living within the EU across six countries: the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and the UK. Thirty years on, this panel will unite the original filmmakers with filmmakers from the UK and Europe, exploring the meaning of being Black in Europe and our changing understandings of notions of belonging, race and identity.
