Black History Month event

To mark Black History Month, Norman Rea Gallery and the History of Art Department invite you to an exclusive screening of two moving image works, Who Killed Colin Roach? (1983) and Derek (2009) by acclaimed British artist and filmmaker Isaac Julien CBE RA. Who Killed Colin Roach? is a poetic investigation into the murder of a young black British man outside a police station in East London. Derek is a documentary exploring the life and art of pioneering queer filmmaker Derek Jarman. The films will be shown sequentially and be introduced by the directors of the gallery. This event will take place online and a link to the website will be provided closer to the time.

Please note this event is open to University of York students and staff only.  Public tickets have all been allocated.  Please accept our apologies for any disappointment.
