Join Ọrẹ Ogunbiyi, Priyamvada Gopal and Lola Olufemi as they draw on their lived experiences to unpack the issues associated by navigating a predominantly white institution as a minority, such as issues of access, unrepresentative curricula, discrimination in the classroom, the problems of activism, and life before and after university.
Lola Olufemi will guide the conversation, having co-authored A FLY Girl’s Guide to University, a collection of memoirs, essays, poetry and prose with three other women of colour at the University of Cambridge.
Priyamvada Gopal is author of Insurgent Empire: Anticolonial Resistance and British Dissent, which examines dissent over the question of empire in Britain. She has been vocal about the issue of race at Cambridge University, where is a University Senior Lecturer and Fellow of Churchill College.
Recent Cambridge graduate Ọrẹ Ogunbiyi (along with Chelsea Kwakye) wrote Taking Up Space as a guide and a manifesto for change. It is the flagship release from #Merky Books.
Together they will come together and demonstrate how to combat these issues in university and beyond.
