Kamal Ahmed

Saturday 8th June 2pm


Former BBC Economics editor  Kamal Ahmed had a very British 1970s childhood: a Raleigh racing bike, Adidas Gazelle trainers, cord trousers – and regularly being told to “go home”, even though he’d been born just down the road. Today, tensions over immigration and Europe have brought some of the attitudes to race that we might have hoped had gone the way of 1970s rainbow jumpers, ferociously to the forefront of British life. As one of the first generation of mixed-race Brits, Ahmed is perfectly placed to explore the conversation around race and identity today. Join him for personal anecdotes, political analysis, and passionate belief in the ultimate good of this country.
