Race, Gender and the Future of Cities

Madhu Krishnan, Sumita Mukherjee, Aisha Rana-Deshmukh and Nicole Truesdell

From the civil rights movement in the US to the contemporary global movements around Black Lives Matter, women of colour have often been at the forefront of campaigns to create more humane and integrated policies and places. The #ThereISBlackInTheUnionJack project looks at race in Bristol through the generations, including women of colour. What can this – and historic and global movements for change – teach us about the future of cities?
