UCL launches new podcast series - Black Lives at UCL
22 April 2021
The new podcast explores the lived experiences of UCL’s Black staff and students through the lens of higher education.
Black Lives at UCL is a new podcast series amplifying and sharing the voices of UCL's Black staff and students. In each episode, three people from the UCL community, talk about their experiences of race, racialisation and systemic racism, and explore what UCL needs to change in order to be better. Each episode focuses on a specific group of people: academics, professional services staff and students from across UCL.
Black Lives at UCL is hosted by Tunde Banjoko OBE, a social justice advocate, UCL alumnus and the founder of multiple initiatives such as Making the Leap, the UK Social Mobility Awards and Black Charity Leaders.
In this video, the Provost talks about why this podcast series is an important step forwards for UCL, and why we should all take the time to listen to it.
