A live online event is set to ask the question: Is Preston a racist city?

Fourteen years ago, official figures showed Preston was England’s worst trouble spot for racist incidents, with national newspapers calling the city “the race hate capital of Britain”.

Now, a panel of guests will explore whether the problem of racism still exists in Preston.

The event will feature Leader of Preston City Council Councillor Matthew Brown, Director of Windrush Initiatives Isa Cole, Glenda Andrew from Preston Windrush Generation and Descendants, Nadeem Ashfaq from Light Foundation, and Sergeant Lana Palmer-Davies from Lancashire Police.

Malcolm Craig from the Baha’i community will host the event.
