Reflecting on the Black Lives Matter events, Advayamati gave this talk at the Bristol Buddhist Centre Sangha Night on Tuesday 9 June, two days after the statue of 17th Century slave trader Edward Colston was pulled down in Bristol.  

This protest was part of an international response to the death of George Floyd in the USA.  

Advayamati ‘tells it straight, with warmth and humour’,  as a man of mixed race (‘I’m black, I’m white, I’m Jewish, I’m Buddhist.  I’m bald as well…’) who has been practising the Dharma for three decades.
