presents a Black History Double Bill with the screening of
'The Importance of Black History?'
'More Than A Month'
Sunday 24th February 2013
The Importance of Black History?
By Nosa Igbinedion
In this riveting and engaging new documentary, award winning filmmaker Nosa Igbinedion teams up with young people from Islington, and experts in the field to explore the importance of Black History and whether it is under-represented in mainstream education and the impact of that in a multicultural Britain. Nosa Igbinedion notes Black History comprises the history of multiple nations, people and ethnicities so how can it be comprised into one month and under the umbrella Black? So is Black History really World History? And if so should school curriculum's be more inclusive to reflect the globalised world and multicultural society we live in today?
'More Than A Month'
By Shukree Hassan Tilghman
Shukree Hassan Tilghman, a 29-year-old African-American filmmaker, sets out on a cross-country campaign to end Black History Month. He explains that relegating Black History Month to the coldest, shortest month of the year is an insult. Through this thoughtful and humorous journey, he explores what the treatment of history tells us about race and equality in a "post-racial" America.
The double bill will be followed by a discussion and debate with Nosa Igbinedion, Director of 'The Importance of Black History?'
