The TORCH Race and Resistance programme are hosting a talk on 'Sport and the Black Freedom Struggle' with Professor Frank Guridy (Columbia University).

How can we understand the role of sports in the Black Freedom Struggle in the United States? This talk historicizes the contemporary Black athletic insurgency by highlighting the ways sporting culture and protest can provide visions of radical inclusion both on the field and in the stands.

This event will be followed by a drinks reception.
