Peaches Golding and her family’s journey to justice

Peaches Golding in-conversation with civil rights historian Dr Madge Dresser.

Peaches Golding is descended from both enslaved Africans and slave owners and her father won a case against segregation on the buses in the deep south 10 years before Rosa Parkes.

Peaches will recount her family history and her own personal journey to become England’s first Black High Sheriff and the nation’s first Black Lord Lieutenant.

Excerpts from a film made about Peaches especially for Journey to Justice by City of Bristol College students will also be featured.
