This is going to also be a great networking opportunity for the African/Caribbean students in the University and also expand to the world, the visibility of Reading University’s strong and vibrant community of exceptional African and Caribbean Young people.
This important occasion will help inspire the next generation of young people- men and women, black and white- to write their own chapter of history. That is something worth celebrating.
