Star Lecture archive – David Olusoga
The University of Manchester’s Professor of Public History, David Olusoga, presented the keynote lecture at the KS3/4 Black History Study Day, part of Black History Month 2019.
Professor David Olusoga is one of Britain’s foremost historians and presenter of landmark documentaries series including Civilisation, A House Through Time and Black and British: a Forgotten History.
Olusoga, who studied History at the University of Liverpool and joined Manchester as Professor of Public History in 2019, says: “I got into history because I wanted to make sense of the forces that have affected my life… I’m from that generation who would look at Trevor McDonald on television – his gravitas and authority – and see hope and potential.”
To commemorate Black History Month 2019, the University and Creative Manchester invited Olusoga to provide the keynote lecture at our KS3/4 Black History Study Day.
