Black History Month Year: A conversation with Dr. Wayne Dooling

A discussion with Dr.Dooling: Education and action does not end in October.

Black History Month was initiated in 1969 in the United States, permeating into a yearly tradition to celebrate black achievement and recognise the systemic oppression faced by Black individuals in day to day life. Coming from a culture where things are often swept under the carpet, the conversation of oppression being one, moving to England has allowed me to understand the celebration of such months to a fuller degree. The protests on the streets, petitions to sign, books to read, people to speak to, learn, learn, and learn. In order to further my knowledge on Black History Month and its multifaceted nature. This week I interviewed Dr. Wayne Dooling, the chair of the African Studies department.
