David Adetayo Olusoga OBE
On Sunday 7 June 2020, protestors marching to support the Black Lives Matter movement in Bristol tore down the statue of slave trader Edward Colston and threw it in the city’s harbour. This dramatic action thrust the city onto the global stage and put it at the forefront of an ongoing and bitter culture war. Broadcaster and historian David Olusoga will explore how the commemoration of individuals from our historical past remains a matter of continued and highly contested importance.
