About the Event
Empireland: Reckoning with our imperial legacy
Sathnam Sanghera in conversation with Sara Wajid
The events of the last year have demonstrated the urgent need for us to understand and reckon with our imperial past and the way it has shaped, and continues to shape, British life.
Join Birmingham Literature Festival and author Sathnam Sanghera to discuss his book, Empireland: How Imperialism Has Shaped Modern Britain, and the ways in which legacies of empire permeate everything from the NHS to our national museums and his own life growing up in Wolverhampton.
Sathnam will be in conversation with Sara Wajid, co-CEO of the Birmingham Museum's Trust and an active advocate for diversity and equality in the arts.
