Talk: Kehinde Andrews

Kehinde Andrews

As part of Index’ current exhibition Woven Winds by Egyptian-Armenian artist Anna Boghiguian, Index will host a lecture and a workshop by Kehinde Andrews. In his lecture and workshop at Index, Andrews will discuss the history of slave trade and the geography which was shaped by colonial trading routes. Colonialism, violence and enslavement, Andrews argues, created a dominant image of the West that is ultimately based on racism.

Kehinde Andrews is associate professor in sociology at Birmingham City University, his most recent publications include Resisting Racism: Race, Inequality and the Black Supplementary School Movement (2013) and Blackness in Britain (2016, as co-editor). He is currently working on the publication Black Radicalism as part of the Blackness in Britian book series edited by Andrews for Zed Books, London.

The talk is accompanied by a workshop with Kehinde Andrews on the following day, Saturday 20 May 2017, 16:00–18:00.

In collaboration with ABF.
