Time to Talk about the Brent Black Community Action Plan

23 November 2020

Brent Council and Young Brent Foundation will be hosting ‘Time to Talk about the Brent Black Community Action Plan’, an online event on Tuesday 8 December from 6pm to 8.30pm.

The aim of the event is to reignite the conversation on race, identity and the experiences of Black people in an honest and meaningful way.

The event will include a keynote address from Lord Simon Woolley (founder of Operation Black Vote).

There will be a panel discussion with Brent-based figures including Ashley Theophane (British Boxer), Liz Mitchell (Lead Singer, Boney M), Danny Coyle (Headteacher), Deji Adeoshun (Youth & Community Manager) and Martina Jean-Jacques (Psychotherapist).

The conversation will build on the Brent Black Community Action Plan, developed by and for Brent’s Black community. The event will be part of a series of activities to keep the council accountable for delivering the actions of the plan, which are aimed at addressing racial inequality.

Cllr Margaret McLennan, Deputy Leader of Brent Council said: “It has been a tough and emotional few months for the Black community around the world. This event will provide a space for the people of Brent to discuss the issues of race and racism. We have one of the most diverse communities here in Brent, and we really want to hear from the community. Please join the conversation and feed into the Brent Black Community Action Plan.”

This event is open to all including local residents, partners and professionals.
