Episode 5: The Important Role of Black Studies

The final episode of Roots / Routes celebrates the importance of Black studies as a means of enlightening wider society, offering truth to a dominant narrative that is not equitable to the Black/Asian experience in Britain. It offers Black poetics and sociality to address our social imaginaries and explore a more complex understanding of subjectivity, identity, and community.

Directed by Nottingham-based Black feminist filmmaker, Patricia Francis and scored by the ambient/dub duo, Space Afrika, Roots/Routes is an upcoming documentary series and collaboration between Nottingham Contemporary and the University of Nottingham that centres the work of Black researchers and thinkers in and around Nottingham.
