Interact goes downtown: Talk with Kojo Koram on his new book „Uncommon Wealth: Britain and the Aftermath of Empire“
News from Jan 25, 2023
Join us for INTERACT’s first event downtown!
We are delighted to host Kojo Koram (Birbeck School of Law) for a talk and discussion on his new book „Uncommon Wealth: Britain and the Aftermath of Empire“. Please join us for the book talk
next Wednesday, 1 February, 7-9 pm at „Aquarium“ next to Südblock (Skalitzer Straße 6, 10999 Berlin).
„Uncommon Wealth is the little known and shocking history of how Britain treated its former non-white colonies after the end of empire. It is the story of how an interconnected group of British capitalists enabled horrific inequality across the globe, profiting in colonial Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. However, the greed unleashed in this era would boomerang, now leaving many ordinary Britons wondering where their own prosperity has gone. Ranging from Jamaica to Singapore, Ghana to Britain, this is a blistering account of how buried decisions of decades past are ravaging Britain today.“
Just recently, Open Democracy published a documentary inspired by his book that is very worth watching:
We would be very happy if you would like to join us for the conversation!
