Introducing 'Black History and Culture,' an Intelligence Squared collection. In this carefully curated selection we revisit some of our favourite live events and podcasts from the past 20 years, journeying through the rich and diverse tapestry of Black history and culture.

We showcase great creators and thinkers, including the co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement, Alicia Garza; poet and activist, Benjamin Zephaniah; and playwright, novelist, critic and broadcaster, Bonnie Greer. We also delve into debates such as ‘Should the West Pay Reparations For Slavery?’ and ‘Hip-Hop vs Shakespeare.’ Join us as we examine the past, engage with the present, and ignite conversations that shape our future."
