A statement concerning Chichester University’s plans to axe their African history course

BY BEO | 04/08/2023

We are very concerned that Professor Adi and the historically important course he teaches will be lost to academia if Chichester forces through its plan to axe the course and make Professor Adi redundant.

“It seems perverse that at a time when major UK institutions are finally taking some ownership of the role they played in creating the African diaspora, the only course in the country looking at the subject, and the academic teaching it, could be lost.

“We urge Chichester University to rethink its decision, reinstate the course and ensure that it doesn’t turn its back on a trailblazing Black professor who has inspired generations of students.”
