ABOUT

Dr Rob Power is an expert in Black History and African History.

 
 

“As a strong advocate of social justice movements and with an expertise in black history, I have been extremely keen to involve myself in as many aspects of the debate concerning BLM and racial equality as possible. My work predominantly involves engaging schools and businesses in the form of workshops, seminars and talks to promote an awareness of the history of racism and equality in Britain. Sadly, this is something that has not been adequately addressed in current discussions surround race and identity. We are seeing the consequences of this in the antipathy towards BLM activists. If we look at the historical context, racism is a top-down, human construct built upon economic exploitation of non-white people. If we begin to see racism in this way, we can change the narrative and begin to create a fairer, more equal society”
