Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones will be our special guest at our Thursday Conversation “The Black Farmer”.
The Thursday Conversations are a series of monthly conversations that encourage us to engage with important issues that impact on all our lives. In an informal, relaxed atmosphere, we discuss and debate with influential figures in fields such as politics, law, social justice and human rights.
Conversations are facilitated by the Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin, Priest-in-Charge at St Mary-at-Hill Church and Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons. Our guest speaker on Thursday 1st December is Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones.
“My own story shapes everything I do. From my own humble beginnings in Jamaica and then inner-city Birmingham, to TV director, to buying my Devon farm and launching The Black Farmer brand, you can catch a glimpse into my soul and what makes me tick. The importance of sharing our stories, unites us, makes us stronger. I find people and their stories endlessly fascinating and enriching. I never stop learning and being amazed at what drives and inspires us. We can learn so much from each other.”
