The Salter Lecture - Bearing witness or bearing whiteness? Britain, Africa and Quakers

Quaker Socialist Society

Diana Jeater will examine the complex historical relationship between Britain, Quakers and Africans. Diana was previously Professor of African History at the University of the West of England (Bristol) and Goldsmiths College, University of London. She now lectures at the University of Liverpool. Diana is a Quaker.

Britain Yearly Meeting work fair

Large Meeting House

BYM Staff

Come and find out more about the work done by Britain Yearly Meeting (BYM). There will be displays and literature available and a chance to speak to staff and committee members. No centrally managed work tables will be at the Sunday evening Groups Fair. We realise that not everyone will be able to attend on Friday afternoon and therefore aspects of the work will also be displayed on the permanent BYM stand throughout the weekend.

Friday 4 May 3:00PM- 3:45PM
