Bel Parnell-Berry is a critical researcher and thinker who, as a public speaker, discusses how colonial stereotypes and misrepresentation of black people and people of colour continue to take affect today. She does this with a mix of personal story telling and imagery, as well as with her own research findings. An important voice for making accessible and understandable how racism and stereotypes continue to take place today.

I have had the pleasure of working alongside Dr. Bel Parnell-Berry at both the national and European levels. Her integrated and intersectional approach is nuanced and both well-suited for the broad novice reader and listener, as it is for academic settings. Bel is a concise, argumentatively strong and skilled public speaker and researcher.

I look forward to more collaborations and inviting her as a contributor in the future.
