Kingdom 1000 with Mary Shuttleworth

Start time: August 18, 2020 6:00 pm BST

2020 marks 1,000 years since the UK's first equality law, which laid the foundation for the progress that led to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To celebrate and discuss this significant millennial, the World Storytelling Café is bringing together storytellers, historians, and creators to explore the themes of equality, diversity, and compassion. Donations during this event are being taken to support Youth for Human Rights – and in this episode we are delighted to welcome the organisation's founder and president, Mary Shuttleworth, to discuss exactly how widely equal justice is really being observed in the world today. We will also get to look at the founding law of equal justice itself – Knut's Proclamation of 1020 – in the company of Dr Charles Insley from Manchester University, and historian and author M.J.Trow. At the end will be a live Q&A with the audience who join us in the Café Zoom Room by clicking "Join story" at or
