The Centre for Race, Education and Decoloniality (CRED) organised a series of successful webinars entitled, “Let’s Talk about Race” (April-June 2020). They attracted a good number of teachers, academics and activists interested in engaging in debates about race and racism. The webinars highlighted the need for more work, resources and information to be available to an audience of scholars, professionals, activists, students and academics. There is a need to provide easily accessible materials which can be consumed to develop the understanding of non-specialists who want to read and learn more beyond the media discourses of racism, Islamophobia and xenophobia.

The podcast series is led by Professor Vini Lander, Director of CRED and Dr Daniel Kilvington in the School of Cultural Studies and Humanities at Leeds Beckett University.
