What They Don’t Want You To Know

Tuesday 28 November

An exploration of the life of Historian and Civil Rights Campaigner, Dr Walter Rodney.

 

Join Homerton Changemakers for an event looking at the work and legacy of the Race Today Collective.

For almost two decades the Race Today Collective was at the centre of Black Liberation in Britain. Inspired by Caribbean intellectual CLR James the Collective organised around the magazine Race Today, edited by celebrated journalist and activist Darcus Howe.

The Collective supported grass roots campaigns for racial justice including the Grunwick dispute which fought for the rights of Black and Asian workers in Trades Unions; the Bengali Housing Action Group’s campaign for decent housing in London’s East End; and organised the Black People’s Day of Action, the largest march for racial justice in British history.

This event brings together former members of Race Today to reflect on the work and legacy of the Collective: the magazine they edited, the campaigns they ran, and the fight for racial justice in Britain in the 1970s and the 1980s.
