Free, but registration is essential. Email Katy (k.pettit@bbk.ac.uk)

Join us for an exciting and ground-breaking evening where activist historians with learning disabilities talk about their work.

People with learning disabilities have been excluded from their own history more than any other group. A new generation of activist historians are working with co-researchers to lay claim to their history, and tell it their way.

Speakers include:

  • Paul Christian and Sue Ledger – the black history of learning disability
  • My Life My Choice and Lee Humber – participation of people with learning disabilities in World War I
  • The Antonia Grandoni Project team – Antonia Grandoni’s story: bringing the past into the present
  • Nathaniel Lawford and Jan Walmsley – finding Grace Eyre and the origins of Shared Lives
  • Panel presentations followed by audience questions and discussion

Supported by the Raphael Samuel History Centre
