Psychological insight on current affairs


posted on 2nd July 2021

We are proud to be hosting a live conversation with radical activist Valerie Brown, 2021 mayoral candidate and film maker Celeste Bell, daughter of punk icon Poly Styrene of X-Ray Spex. 

These female icons will share their insights on black activism and rebellion through the decades. They will be introduced by Bryony Heard, author of ‘England Our England’ which tells the stories of the Black and Asian Migrant Pioneers.

The event will be hosted at Soho House, White City, on Tuesday the 6th of July, 7-9pm. It will be open to all Soho House Members and afterwards an audio recording will be uploaded on YouTube and our website here. 

This conversation will be one of many events this summer and into the autumn in which we promote conversations amongst Windrush generations. By continuing to open up this dialogue we choose to remember their lives and the contributions they have made to British society in a wide range of areas.

Stay tuned to learn new ideas and gain new perspectives from these with powerful and inspirational women!
