The Heritage Debate Series Statues: To topple or to repurpose? The greatest question of our generation
- 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
- Virtual Event
The FJSS Group in collaboration with Samuel Whitbread Academy and the Robert Bloomfield Academy is bringing together this great event to the public. This event is provoking discussion and conversation across some schools, and beyond. It is showing a great way to get students to talk about the fate of some statues, Scottish involvement in the slave trade, and also to take another look at the UK Imperial past. It has also opened the way to talk about race and racism today.
The event is bringing together students and volunteers from schools to deliberate and debate on the subject. We are inviting the general public to this exciting event.
