Review: Tomiwa Owolade in conversation with Colin Grant Pavilion Arts Centre Buxton
He thinks that we accept American ideas, arguments and agendas about race which may not be relevant in the UK.
He spoke of the difference between the UK and USA in terms of history, the legacy of empire, diversity of ethnic minority population and the importance of social class differences in this country.
All these and other factors are relevant to Black British life today, he argued convincingly. He spoke with eloquence and insights.
This was a really thought-provoking session. I would have appreciated hearing more from Tomiwa Owolade and a little less from Colin Grant.
