RACISM: A HISTORY
This powerful documentary was first broadcast on BBC Four in March 2007 to mark the bicentenary of the Slave Trade Act 1807 which abolished the slave trade in the British Empire. In a three-part documentary series, the history of racism over the last 500 years is examined in close detail, revealing some uncomfortable truths about how racist attitudes came into being and spread into popular opinion. We offer a safe space for more than just discussion, but opportunities for action in healing our personal histories and communities.
