British Black Power: Leila Hassan-Howe in conversation, 3 November | Online Event | British Black Power: Leila Hassan-Howe in conversation
Black British Civil Rights activist, leader, writer, history maker and co-founder of the 1970s 'Race Today Collective' tells her story

About this Event

Leila Hassan-Howe has fought against state and street racism since the 1970s. She was strategist and activist in her own right quite apart from being the wife of the legendary Black Power activist Darcus Howe.

This event is organised by Black History Walks in conjunction with the Sarah Parker Remond Centre at U.C.L

In this illustrated talk Ms Hassan Howe will take us through her story: from working class London to upper class Africa and back, life as one of only three black girls in a racist grammar school, taking over a colonialist institution, publishing a newspaper Race Today, organising cultural events in the 70’s and 80’s, liberating properties, challenging police brutality,20,000 marchers on the Black Peoples Day of Action 1981, documenting the 1981 uprisings, the parallels with Black Lives Matter in 2020 and much more.

This is an online talk at 6.30pm UK time and will be delivered via Zoom. Please check your JUNK MAIL for the confirmation and reminder emails
