This is the first in a series of events organised by NTU’s Department of Sport Science where we will be highlighting equality, diversity, and inclusion discourse within the sport industry throughout the academic year.
Staff members Dr David Hindley and Anika Leslie-Walker have created an event this month, that allows students to explore the historical migration of the Afro-Caribbean community to England and more specifically, Nottingham. A plenary conversation will be provided by Dr Angelina Osborne (MBE) an expert in Black British History, politics of enslavement and the co-author of ‘100 Great Black Britons’. Additionally, NTU alumni and local role models will sit on the panel who range from international athletes, entrepreneurs, and practitioners within the sports industry.
We would also like to invite staff and student allies from other backgrounds to attend, in support of reducing discrimination and racism towards those from a Black background. It is easy to be a passive bystander however we would like to discuss on the evening, appropriate steps of action within the educational sphere to create holistic long-term change, rather than performative gestures.
We are delighted to be welcoming the following panel members:
Dr Angelina Osborne MBE – Historian, heritage consultant, and writer. Co-author of 100 Great Black Britons.
Dwayne Peasah – Strength and Conditioning Coach for Oxford United Football Club; Founder of Max Performance.
Declan James – Professional squash player who represents England. Commonwealth Games gold medal winner.
Prince Lamona – sports agent with the agency Group 154.
Further panelists will be confirmed in due course.
This event is open to staff, students and the general public.
