Here is a video review of 'After the Flood' from Rebbecca Hemmings, one of the audience at last Friday's screening in Birmingham.
"With an insatiable appetite to learn more about this beast named 'racism', Friday, I saw the documentary 'After the Flood, The Church, Slavery and Reconciliation' by Robert Beckford PhD and The Ministry for Justice and Reconciliation. If you want to catapult forward on your antiracism journey, you NEED to SEE THIS, regardless of your religious beliefs, or if you have any. I was struck by how the challenges of creating an equitable society are similar to many organisations. There seems to be a willingness to acknowledge harm done, but the sticking points are in changing the power structures and taking significant action. This video shares a modicum of my experience and thoughts. Though I am still very much processing the wealth of information shared.
Thank you Dr Beckford, MJR and all involved for such an eye-opening telling of our story".
