This week, we have added six links that highlight subjects relating to local, national and global interest. The first is Bristol Radical History Group which encourages scrutiny into historical events. The Runnymede Trust is a nationally respected organisation which works on issues of equality to influence policy. Mining in Africa links provide an overview of some of the natural resources used across the world. Two links with an art connection include Autograph ABP which provides photographic evidence of Black presence before 1948, especially in the Edwardian and Victorian era. The other link which alludes to art and philosophy is that which shows and explains the significance of the Adinkra symbols which are widely represented in West African society. The last addition to the Directory is that of the Sickle Cell Society which aims to educate people about a medical condition that is prevalent in mainly people of African descent.
The one standout series of podcasts is Have you heard George’s Podcast?
