Please join us for this fascinating talk where Rev. Mark Yan Ying Sum Nam explores the representation of East Asian people in Sci-Fi and the media, and what this teaches us about racism. Mark will bring his insights into conversation with scripture to re-imagine a post-racial Britain for East-Asian diaspora, and how the Church might respond.   Presented by Revd. Mark Yan Ying Sum Nam
