Short walk: Part 2: Padmore and African Independence


A journalist, radical activist, and theoretician, Padmore did more than perhaps any other single individual to shape the theory and discourse of Pan-African anti-imperialism in the first half of the twentieth century.”

Find out about this towering figure in global politics and change, where he lived in an unassuming street. This short walk fits into your lunchtime.
