Blacks Britannica shows the realities of race and class in 1970s Britain with rare honesty and is a powerful base for thinking about racism and the state today. The film charts the history of black people and black struggle in Britain from colonialism and migration to the Notting Hill Carnival and the Spaghetti House siege. The film has been described as ‘a harsh, relentless and passionate indictment of the British ruling class for manipulating and exploiting British blacks in the interest of profit’.
There will be a chance to discuss the film after the screening with Colin Prescod (IRR Chair), one of the writers and activists who features in the film. Colin himself made the acclaimed series Struggles for Black Community.
