SESSIONS
10AM – 5.20PM


A BAFTA winning film-maker and historian, an ITV news anchor, a former professional boxer and a critically acclaimed American author are just some of the people coming together in Liverpool to address the issue of racism.

On Tuesday 26 April a unique conference will see a day of conversation and debate around systematic racism in today’s society.

Led by Mayor of Liverpool Joanne Anderson, she will be joined by presenter and historian David Olusoga OBE, Loose Women and news anchor Charlene White, activist and journalist Kevin Powell and former boxer turned actor Tony Bellew.

The day will cover sectors such as education, sport, the media, fashion and technology – with more than 60 speakers and facilitators on the line-up delivering the sessions.
