‘Absent From The Academy’ | A film about the absence of black academics in the UK

A teacher – one of the very few black faculty members within my university – directed me to this video. This film, by Nathan E. Richards, is crucial in highlighting the absence of the black voice within academia, structural forces that keep the status quo intact, and asking what can be done to tackle this lack of representation. HIghly recommended.
