Race, History, and Brexit: Exploring the politics of erasure and documenting the experiences of Black and minority ethnic communities in Scotland post Brexit
25th October, Glasgow Caledonian University, 17:45 pm – 19:30 pm | Free
The media has reacted to a reported 60% spike in racist attacks in the wake of the Brexit vote with soul-searching articles on race and racism in Britain. While welcome, these debates present racism as a ‘new’ phenomenon, erasing Black people’s experiences of and resistance to everyday and institutionalised racism.
Glasgow Caledonian University’s Dr Ima Jackson, Dr Akwugo Emejulu, of the University of Edinburgh and Clare Heuchan, Glasgow Women’s Library will lead an exploration of the politics and history of the erasure of race and racism in Britain and examine creative resistances developed by Black communities to counteract that experience. Bringing together activists, practitioners and academics, the seminar will attempt to understand this historic moment and develop collective strategies for social justice

Sister Outrider x TYCI: Building an Anti-Racist, Feminist Manifesto
27th October, Glasgow Women’s Library, 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm | Free – £3
Historically Black women and women of colour have frequently been excluded from the women’s liberation and feminist movements as white feminists typically at the forefront of these movements didn’t factor in the intersection of race or racial oppression. With Claire’s work as a provocation and starting point, we invite our local and online communities to come together in discussion, creatively and collaboratively building an anti-racist feminist manifesto for Glasgow and Scotland. In addition to exciting discussion, there will be tunes from the TYCI DJs, delicious snacks, and great chat all round. From fledgling radicals to full on revolutionaries, all are welcome.
This event is a Sister Outrider and TYCI in partnership with CRER (Coalition for Racial Equality and Rights) and Glasgow Women’s Library, programmed as part of Glasgow’s Black History Month.
