Sandy Ogundele is Black and Minority Ethnic Students’ Officer at UCL. She has designed a series of events for Black History Month entitled Black Futures – The Future is Now focusing on “how the past influences the future, how history and knowledge can be reclaimed, how we can make and imagine a liberated future for ourselves and how we can achieve justice.”
