Mixed Messages: Dual-heritage lives in twentieth-century Britain
As part of Black History Month, 'Mixed Messages' explores the experiences of people in dual-heritage relationships and their children and how they changed the face of modern Britain.
It is the premiere of a sound collage of oral testimony compiled by Dr Marcus Collins, Reader in Contemporary History, from over twenty men and women from Britain, Chile, Cyprus, Egypt, India, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Jamaica, Pakistan, St. Kitts and Nevis, Trinidad and Yemen. They describe how they met, married, and settled in twentieth-century Birmingham and how their children created dual-heritage identities in the face of discrimination.
The presentation will be accompanied by an open discussion of dual-heritage relationships chaired by Dr Varun Uberoi, Reader in Political Theory and Public Policy. The event is sponsored by Loughborough University’s Black History Network.
