UK rapper Professor Green, who recently made the acclaimed documentary Working Class White Men for Channel 4, was ‘in conversation’ on the same subject at a free public event at Edge Hill on 7 June.

The event saw Professor Green discuss the difficulties today’s youth face and what more can be done to bring about equality in society with Edge Hill’s Dr Eleanor Peters and Grace Robinson, chaired by Sean Creaney, Lecturer in Psychosocial Analysis of Offending Behaviour. He also met and chatted with students.

In Conversation: Professor Green on Working Class White Men was part of the University’s third annual Festival of Ideas, which this year explores a theme of Equalities. The Festival is a series of talks, exhibitions and performances to engage academics, students and members of the public in conversations upon a common theme and is programmed by Edge Hill’s three research institutes, The Postgraduate Medical Institute (PGMI), The Institute for Public Policy and Professional Practice (I4P), and The Institute for Creative Enterprise (ICE).
