About the Event


Please join UK Social Community Manager at Tik Tok, Nina Danjuma and Interdisciplinary Artist Jamel Duane Alatise in conversation with David Adesanya of Dilemma to explore what it means to be a young Black person, living in the UK in 2020. Audience members will be invited to debate critical questions such as:

  • ‘How much self-agency do young  Black people have to shape their individuality &
  • Is race (still?) the most  important aspect of young  Black people’s identity?’

Whether you are a young person from the African diaspora or not, we want to know what you think. Come and  share your points of view! UNAPOLOGETICALLY BLACK is targeted at young people aged 16 and over. Talk starts at 7.00pm on Wednesday 9th December.
