Award winning author, columnist and broadcaster Yasmin Alibhai-Brown delivers the third in this series of annual lectures which reflect critically on news production and reporting. Since arriving as a refugee from Uganda in 1972, she has become one of Britain’s best known and most combative journalists. Her publications - such as No Place Like Home, delve into issues of social justice and challenge convenient and conventional attitudes, as does her latest collection of columns in The Independent. A feminist and a Muslim, she has frequently incurred the wrath of those who feel uncomfortable because she refuses to ‘toe the party line’.

Organised by the Bristol branch of the National Union of Journalists
