Black History Month Lecture

Robbie Shilliam is Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University. He has published widely on the history of race, eugenics, neoliberalism and empire. His recent book, 'Race and the Undeserving Poor' is a bold account of the ways that race has limited access to welfare and citizenship in Britain and its empire from the abolition of slavery to Brexit. He joins us in discussion with Sam Wetherell to talk about black British history, the rise and fall of the welfare state and Britain's present political crisis.
