Tue 6th Oct: Black Sheep – Cornelius Walker – The Camera as a Tool of Empowerment

We are delighted to be joined for a Q&A webinar with Cornelius Walker, the subject of Oscar-nominated short documentary Black Sheep. Commissioned by newspaper The Guardian, Black Sheep is an intensely personal short film exploring the racism Walker experienced in his youth and the astonishing ways he fundamentally changed himself in response to it. 

We will be focusing on the camera as a tool of empowerment in highlighting the issues of racism, identity and peer pressure but also as an opportunity for activism now and us all to be the change.
