Olympic medallist Anyika Onoura holding her auto biography

As part of our Black History Month celebrations, we will hear the astonishing story of Anyika Onuora, who has overcome numerous challenges throughout her career to win an Olympic medal for Team GB.

Anyika will discuss her journey, and how she has had to fight dis-crimination, racism and sexual abuse. She highlights the problems that still exist within athletics and asks serious questions of British society and sport, with readings from her recent book My Hidden Race.

Anyika will be in conversation with Dr Jenny Barrett, co-founder of the International Centre on Racism at Edge Hill University, before a Q&A session with the audience.
