Black History Month: We Are Poets girl

What's on

Celebrating Black History Month 2013

October is Black History Month, and once again we welcome a selection of films and events celebrating the enormous impact that black experience, heritage and culture has had, and continues to have, throughout the globe.

The programme kicks off with a focus on the work of one of America's greatest living directors, the legendary Charles Burnett, who we will also welcome via Skype for a free talk on Sun 6 Oct presented in partnership with Rebop Productions. We've joined forces with Ujima Radio and Afrika Eye for a series of The New Black Bristol events including John Akomfrah's acclaimed new documentary The Stuart Hall Project which looks at the life and work of Jamaican migrant Hall, one of the most inspiring voices of the post-war Left, and we're also covering topics ranging from the civil rights movement (Nothing But A Man, reputedly Malcolm X's favourite film), to contemporary youth poets creating thrilling performances in the UK's inner cities (We Are Poets) and the colourful world of Afro barbers (The Fade). Plenty, then, to engage the mind and the heart...

Tickets: £8.00 full / £6.50 concessions (unless otherwise stated).

With thanks to writer/curator Karen Alexander.
