Event Details

From abolitionists and industrial revolution-era social reformers to pioneers of modern nursing, beloved children’s authors and recipients of the Victoria Cross, 100 Great Black Britons is a national poll which celebrates the many ways in which Black Britons have challenged and overcome racial barriers to make notable advances in their field.

Patrick Vernon and Dr Angelina Osborne join Pamela Armstrong to talk about some of the greatest figures on the latest list of 100 Black Britons – some widely known and others hidden until now from view – and explore their remarkable lives. 

This is a pre-recorded event. Please email your speaker question to by 11pm on Saturday 12th September.
