About this video
In this film, Sidelong Glance reimagines celebrated readings given by Mary E. Webb, the African American actor. Webb toured Britain in the 1850s with her husband, the writer Frank Webb, visiting leading abolitionists and giving stirring dramatic readings from classic and contemporary literature.
Whose History?, a series of four films created by production company Sidelong Glance, tells the stories of people who have lived, worked and studied on or nearby the University of Liverpool’s South Campus over the past 200 years.
The series considers individual lives and collective experiences. It examines relationships between place, memory, and forgetting. It asks questions about identity, exclusion, and belonging. And it does all this through the words of many brave, creative, and dedicated people who have walked the streets of this global city at different times in history, and whose influence – even if we can’t see it, or haven’t always known where to look for it – continues to shape the area and its cultures today.
