Meet at 13:00 in the Main Quad for a eugenics tour of UCL based on the podcast Bricks + Mortals, created by Subhadra Das, a UCL Culture curator.

To contribute to the celebrations and frank discussions that occur during Black History Month, the UCL Museum Society are running three tours over October which explore the history of Eugenics at UCL through its architecture. This normally self-guided tour is known as ‘Bricks + Mortals’, that lifts the veil on prominent figures at UCL and their lesser known contributions to validate Eugenic practices. Please join us on either the 9th, 17th or 25th of October in the Main Quad at 1.00pm for this free event.

Due to much of the tour taking place on busy streets, we can only take 20 people per tour. So please purchase a free ticket online to guarantee your space!

You can find the full podcast here: mediacentral.ucl.ac.uk/Player/9717

UCL staff and students can participate in the Inquiry by completing a survey here.

Black Futures

We must act in the present to make our future what we want it to be. ‘Black Futures’ asks us how we want to move from surviving to thriving. ‘Black Futures’ asks us to reclaim history for ourselves… because history is political and so is our future.

What is the BME Network

The Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Students’ Network is a place of support, acceptance and activism. This year we’ll be running the Decolonising UCL campaign, working to close the BME attainment gap, supporting the fight for free education by resisting changes to higher education that hit BME students the hardest and fighting for free crisis accommodation for students in need.
