Black Advisory Hub


Congratulations to Antonia Antrobus-Higgins, a 2nd year HSPS student at Murray Edwards, who entered the Bridgetower Prize essay competition and received £1000 for her winning essay. This yearly competition is hosted in partnership with the Legacies of Enslavement Inquiry and the Alexander Crummell Fund. 

Antonia answered the following prompt: "As suggested by the Legacies of Enslavement Report, "intellectual and scientific justification for racism, including those developed at Cambridge, have long played a significant role in underpinning and supporting everyday racist assumptions of racial inequality and particularly of Black inferiority."

To what extent does Cambridge, as an academic institution, challenge the myth of Black inferiority?"
