BLACK LEADERSHIP THEN AND NOW:
Outstanding programme by Rosemary Laryea on the 5th Pan African Congress in Manchester and how it relates to the Black Lives Matter movement of today. The BBC Radio 4 programme touched on the celebrations PAC@75: 75th anniversary celebrations of the 5th Pan African Congress Viewing the Past and Looking to the Future as part of Black History Month 2020 that I co-curated with the wonderful Professor Ola Uduku (now Head of Architecture, University of Liverpool) whom, alongside Manchester Metropolitan University students and our collaborators from Universities of Salford and of Manchester, are interviewed in the programme.
