On the Q&A panel, MJR was represented by Professor Dr. Robert Beckford and our Chair Revd. Alton Bell. It also included a strong contingent from the Church of England with the Dean of Bristol Cathedral Canon Dr. Mandy Ford, Revd. Dr. Catherine Okoronkwo who is the Advisor on Racial Justice to the Bishop of Bristol (the Rt. Revd Vivienne Faull), Rev Mary Hotchkiss Curate in the Bristol Diocese and Revd. Chris Dobson who is the Ecumenical Advisor and Partnership Officer to the Diocese of Bristol.
A lively Q&A session followed the film with chair Alton Bell deftly handling questions covering a wide range of topics from the cost of reparations, the need to take action now and what happens next. Comments included:
- "Highly recommended to my Bristol church family, will be uncomfortable but important viewing." Rev Philip Nott.
- "A most stimulating and worthwhile film, very good." Pastor Eric Aidoo Chair CTE Bristol.
- "We have learnt from the recent past and we are listening." Canon Dr. Mandy Ford.
- "Thank you for a challenging film and discussion last night" Twitter.
The evening concluded with a vote of thanks by MJR Trustee Keith Cottrell who observed that this film is sowing seeds for change across our country.
