100 years after the first steps were taken towards voting rights for Women in the UK, Bristol Women’s Voice and Sing With Soul celebrate Bristol’s Women of Colour, through a line up of performance, talks and panel discussions.
The event will unearth the stories of incredible women of colour who fought for equality and the right to vote, shining a light on those whose contribution has too often gone overlooked.
Our very own Programme Support Assistant and UWE Alumni Stacey Olika will be amongst the speakers of this day.
In the words of Sandra Gordon, Bristol Women’s Voice event organiser: ‘So many Black Women have led the way fighting inequality and injustice throughout their lives, without the acknowledgement and recognition of their invaluable contribution. I am proud to be working on a project that ensures that history is told, remembered and celebrated by all within our diverse city.’
