Darcus Howe, Race Today: Legacies of Resistance

Renowned journalist Gary Younge's talk commemorates black liberation pioneer Darcus Howe, Race Today and the ‘Uprising’ history of the UK.

Journalist & Broadcaster Gary Younge, partners with the Darcus Howe Legacy Collective to launch the Special Issue of the journal Race Today – published to commemorate the 80th birthday of radical pioneer Darcus Howe.


The event is also the launch of Race Today’s on-line archive – that makes accessible a crucial resource for exploring the recent history of black protest in Britain.

This event is a celebration of Darcus’ life, and his enduring legacy as a champion of organised grassroots resistance towards unjust power. In the midst of a wave of strikes not seen for a generation, and at a time when the government is determined to curtail the right to protest, a discussion of dissent and the legacy of black resistance is more relevant than ever.

Tickets £5 – maximum of 2 per order

Free to students and unemployed people – bring ID to show at the door.

Copies of books by Gary Younge and about Darcus Howe will be on sale from The Word bookshop at the event.
