‘Back to Black: Retelling Black Radicalism for the 21st Century’ with Kehinde Andrews

Wednesday September 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

£1 – £5

Back to Black traces the long and eminent history of Black radical politics. Born out of resistance to slavery and colonialism, its rich past encompasses figures such as Marcus Garvey, Angela Davis, the Black Panthers and the Black Lives Matter activists of today. At its core it argues that racism is inexorably embedded in the fabric of society, and that it can never be overcome unless by enacting change outside of this suffocating system. Yet this Black radicalism has been diluted and moderated over time; wilfully misrepresented and caricatured by others; divested of its legacy, potency, inclusivity and force for global change.

Kehinde Andrews explores the true roots of this tradition and connects the dots to today s struggles by showing what a renewed politics of Black radicalism might look like in the 21st century.
