Black British Artists & Political Activism: The British Black Panther Party

Thursday 2 December 2021

This is session five of the Black British Artists and Political Activism Public Lecture Course.


In this session, the artist Keith Piper will join Elizabeth Robles in conversation to discuss the ways in which the politics of Black Nationalism, promoted by key figures such as Maulana (Ron) Karenga, and the internationalist socialism of the Black Panther Party were woven through artistic discourses of the early 1980s.

Underpinning the formation of the BLK Art Group and the foundation of the Black-Art Gallery, he will trace their articulation across diverse and varied creative and curatorial episodes at the beginning of what has come to be known as a ‘British Black Arts Movement’.
