Kathleen Wrasama: Black British Women Activists Talk
August 30 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The names and stories of black women are conspicuously absent from the history of East London. Kathleen Wrasama, is one of the few the archive can provide.
Taken by church missionaries from Ethiopia as a child before the First World War, she found a home in East London as a part of the Somali sailors’ community.
Join us as we explore the life of Kathleen and the black women the archives are unable/unwilling to speak about.
Hudda Khaireh is an independent researcher and artist with a background in Public International Law.
