From 1974 to 1988, Race Today, the journal of the revolutionary Brixton based Race Today Collective, was at the epicentre of the struggle for racial justice in Britain. Placing race, sex and social class at the core of its analysis, it featured contributions from some of the leading voices of the time: C. L. R. James, Darcus Howe, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, Walter Rodney, Bobby Sands, Farrukh Dhondy and Mala Sen and many more.
Join members of the Race Today Collective past contributors and those today who take inspiration from Race Today, to launch the first book-length anthology of articles – Here to Stay, Here to Fight.
Organised by the Darcus Howe Legacy Group in collaboration with Lambeth Libraries.
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
