Black British politics and the anti-apartheid struggle

This event has finished Took place on: Friday, 4th Nov 2016

The Apartheid regime saw the formation of black communities in both Britain and South Africa which came together to display solidarity in the face of discrimination and highly charged racial tensions.

Join us as we discuss original documents which record the history and racial politics of the apartheid era. We will be looking at how campaigners, activists and movements on opposite sides of the globe united in the struggle towards freedom.

Cost: Free of Charge
