Emma Dabiri speaking in Cornell Migrations Summer Institute

 Emma Dabiri: The World We Became

Jul 22, 2021 11:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)

ONE OF THE BBC’S BROADCASTING STARS OF THE FUTURE, EMMA DABIRI IS A PRESENTER, SOCIAL HISTORIAN AND WRITER.
Mapping race, colonialism, and hair, Emma will guide us through the geometries and fractals of African-diaspora braiding and cartography. Her latest documentary Hair Power: Me and My Afro (Channel 4) asks some of the most important questions facing the Black British population - and how it is that hair became one of the most misunderstood, celebrated and debated aspects of the black experience. Emma co-presents Britain’s Lost Masterpieces on BBC 4 and Virtually History on YouTube Originals, Back in Time for Brixton and the Back in Time Confectioners series (BBC Two), Is Love Racist? (Channel 4) and has made a number of social history films for The One Show (BBC).

All keynotes are open to the public, and we hope to post these recordings to our website.
