Join us for a panel discussion in response to All White Everything But Me by North East actor and writer Kemi-Bo Jacobs, inspired by the life of Althea Gibson. The first Black athlete to win a tennis Grand Slam and Wimbledon (twice), Althea Gibson was a sporting pioneer who went on to be a professional golfer, a Hollywood actor, recording artist and writer. This play celebrates her legacy, and hopes to reintroduce people to a brilliant figure largely forgotten in recent history; the panel will explore the themes of forgotten history that emerge from the piece–who decides what is remembered and who is erased?

Beverley Prevatt Goldstein
Beverley Prevatt Goldstein became the first CEO of BECON (Black Ethnic Community Organisations Network). During her time there, 2001-2005, she facilitated the black voluntary sector in the North East having a voice on all the strategic regional bodies in the North East. In 2004 Beverley was offered a PHD studentship at Bristol University on Good Practice with black children in contested family court cases.
Beverley added a new career in her 60’s, becoming a qualified yoga teacher and back care and restorative yoga specialist. Beverley continues to be involved with the black voluntary sector. She engaged with ‘Freedom Thinktank’ to input a black perspective to the North East rather self-congratulatory approach to the commemoration of the ending of the British slave trade. This group worked with museums, art galleries, libraries to insist that the efforts and achievements of the enslaved be recognised. She re-engaged with the North East of England African Community Association, which she currently chairs. She has maintained her interest in social work, initially on the Board of the General Social Care Council and subsequently on the Board of the British Association of Social Workers.
