SPEAKEASY: I, Too, Am Oxford
Emmanuella Kwenortey spoke to the brains and faces (which include herself) behind the “I, Too, Am Oxford” project, a campaign that aims to highlight the racial discrimination faced by ethnic minority students here at the University of Oxford (http://itooamoxford.tumblr.com/?og=1). The project has received worldwide attention from news organizations including the Guardian, Al Jazeera and the Huffington Post in its bid to dispel the myth that racial discrimination plays no part at Oxford University. They spoke to Oxide Radio this morning and had shared some of their thought-provoking and divisive views.
