With the role of Director of Voice for Change England, creative arts practitioner Kunle Olulode has pioneered multiple initiatives for Black artists, musicians and filmmakers in the UK and abroad. In November 2015 he joined the centenary symposium of The Birth of a Nation hosted at the International Slavery Museum in Liverpool to talk about his work and to share his perspectives on race equality in the arts, difficult art and how to respond to Griffith’s film a century since its release. Here he considers the ways in which Birth prompted and inspired Black filmmakers and the temptation to self-censor felt by today’s generation of Black creatives and concludes that Birth continues to be relevant today as we navigate racism in the twenty-first century.
