The politics of Race in Britain and South Africa: Black British Solidarity and the Anti-Apartheid Struggle

Friday 13 October 5:45 until 8pm

Elizabeth Williams will be discussing her book on global struggle against racism.  She will talk about the solidarity of the African Diaspora people of Britain and the struggle against apartheid in South Africa. The two were inextricably linked against an implacable foe which sought to exploit the divisions that inevitably arise in all movements but which ultimately was defeated with the political liberation of South Africa.  Elizabeth Williams is   a visiting lecturer in modern history at several universities and works as a subject librarian at Goldsmiths University of London.
