Gerlin Bean: Mother of the Movement

Saturday 14th October

The Black Cultural Archives will be hosting the book launch of Gerlin Bean: Mother of the Movement by AS Francis, published by Lawrence Wishart. This book recovers the neglected history of a key activist and community organiser in Britain’s Black radical movement.


The event will feature a panel discussion with AS Francis, focusing on Gerlin Bean’s significant contributions to Black radical organising in the 1960s-1980s.

The author will be joined by Stella Dadzie, author of Heart of the Race, and community historian Kelly Foster. It will be moderated by History Hotline podcaster, Deanna Lyncook.

This is the first new title in Lawrence Wishart’s Radical Black Women Series.
