The Barbados Independence lecture - Q&A

Community & Culture

“What does it mean to be Black and Middle Class (and a Professional)?” The Barbados Independence Lecture 2019

Every year, the High Commission of Barbados and The National Council of Barbadian Associations (UK) collaborate to provide a schedule of events to celebrate Barbados’ independence. One of the most popular is the annual Independence Panel Discussion. This year, we will have the privilege of a lecture and Q & A by our very own Richard Drayton, Rhodes Professor of Imperial History, King’s College London, intriguingly entitled:"What does it mean to be Black and Middle Class (and a Professional)?"
