Ian Gulland Lecture Theatre, Goldsmiths University London, SE14 6NW
A talk with the renowned journalist and author of the foreword to 'Staying Power: The History of Black People in Britain'.
Journalist, Gary Younge, partners with the Darcus Howe Legacy Collective to launch the Special Issue of the journal Race Today – published to commemorate the 80th birthday of radical pioneer Darcus Howe.
The event is also the launch of Race Today’s on-line archive – that makes accessible a crucial resource for exploring the recent history of black protest in Britain.
This event is a celebration of Darcus’ life, and his enduring legacy as a champion of organised grassroots resistance towards unjust power. In the midst of a wave of strikes not seen for a generation, and at a time when the government is determined to curtail the right to protest, a discussion of dissent and the legacy of black resistance is more relevant than ever.
This event is organised by the editors of Here to Stay, Here to Fight.
A unique anthology of Race Today (1973-88), featuring original contributions from C. L. R. James, Linton Kwesi Johnson and Darcus Howe
