The month of October is celebrated as the Black History Month in the UK. The Black History Month is intended to celebrate, publicise, and reflect upon the contributions and achievements of the members of the black community in the UK. As a part of the our efforts to commemorate this important campaign, the Welfare Team at Wolfson College is putting together a panel discussion where we have an excellent line up of three speakers who will offer us their reflections on race and identity in their personal and professional lives.

Speakers: Evelyn Ofori-Koree, Solicitor-Advocate & Principal of Descartes Solicitors Michelle Codrington-Rogers, Teacher & Senior Vice-President NASUWT Kelly-Ann Fonderson, MPhil Candidate in Development Studies This event has been organised in association with the Oxford University Africa Society (AfriSoc).
