EMBRACE, the School’s black and ethnic minority staff network, is organising events to celebrate Adult Learners’ Week (14-20 May).

Celebrating the 20th Adult Learners’ Week in 2011, the initiative continues to be the largest drive for learning of its kind – celebrated in over 55 countries across the world. Find out more about Adult Learners’ Week on www.alw.org.uk  

EMBRACE Chocolate Master class and Tasting

EMBRACE is holding a Chocolate Master class and Tasting on Thursday 19th May from 6pm – 8pm in the Parish Hall.

The event will include a talk by Paul Wayne Gregory followed by a chocolate making demonstration and a chocolate tasting session. For more information about Paul Wayne Gregory, please click on the following link: http://www.festivalchocolate.co.uk/the-masters/master-choclatier-4/

EMBRACE Black History tour

EMBRACE is hosting a Black History Tour on Tuesday 24th May from 6pm – 8pm in the St Paul’s Area.

The unique St Paul’s/Bank walk takes inside streets and back alleys that one would never see from the main road.  As we meander along the quiet footpaths bit by bit, we uncover the hidden connections between Africa, the diaspora and the infrastructure of ancient and modern London.

We reveal how African names came to be given to streets and areas. We look at the visual imagery of London and point out the obvious African influences, which are so often ignored despite being quite blatant.

If you would like to attend either of these events, please e-mail embrace@lse.ac.uk by Wednesday 11th May so that your name can be added to the list of attendees. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

EMBRACE (Ethnic Minorities Broadening Racial Awareness and Cultural Exchange) is LSE’s black and ethnic minority staff network. View photographs of EMBRACE’s launch event on the blog.
