Black British politics and the anti-apartheid struggle

2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

In 1948, from the introduction of apartheid in South Africa, this state sponsored racial discrimination galvanized the international community in protest. British people and black communities in particular attempted to lead the global opposition against apartheid.

Historian Dr Elizabeth Williams (Goldsmiths University of London) will discuss the research that went into her book, The Politics of Race in Britain and South Africa: Black British Solidarity and the Apartheid Struggle (2015), and will explore aspects of the documents she utilised as she revisited this very recent history.
