Jon Bloomfield - Migration and the Making of Modern Birmingham
Sunday 9th December, 3pm
Jon Bloomfield works in Birmingham, focusing on cities, Europe and climate change, and is the author of forthcoming publication Our City: Migration and the Making of Modern Birmingham.
Race and migration are the most volatile and explosive issues in British politics today. In contrast to the tabloid headlines, Jon will explore how one of Britain’s major cities has been transformed for the better by its migrant population, and argue for a firm defence of the principles of racial equality with a confident assertion of why mixed, open societies are the way forward for 21st century cities, and why migrants are central to their future dynamism and prosperity.
