Brexit (Britain’s Exit from the European Union), a prospective move by the United Kingdom to withdraw from the European Union. This move could lead to the most significant economic and political shake in the history of the country.
So far, there has been much written about the relevance of the move for different parts of the country, in terms of generationally, class and Britain’s place in the world. However, the attention on Britain’s Black community and the implication on the black commonwealth has been minimal.
Black Brexit Conference on March 15, 2018, from 8am-2pm at Central London will seek to give voice to the views of Britain’s Black community as negotiations reach a critical stage.
Too often when those negotiating and commenting on Brexit talk about the need for closer ties between the UK and the Commonwealth post Brexit, they usually refer to Canada, Australia, New Zealand and sometimes India; but there are 52 countries in the Commonwealth club with a combined population of 2.3 billion people, a third of the world’s population, and with 94% living in Asia and Africa.
Guided by Conference Chair Trevor Williams and Moderator Henry Bonsu, attendees will hear from business leaders, entrepreneurs, Commonwealth representatives, economists, trade and finance specialists, including Shamik Dhar, Melanie V Eusebe, Ian Greenstreet, Professor Victor Murinde, Henry Obi, Dr Emilia Onyema, Maggie Semple and Janet Thomas.
