By Any Means Necessary: The Future of Black Radicalism
The Black Lives Matter movement has recharged black politics and the fight for racial justice, inspiring a new generation to take to the streets.
In Back to Black: Retelling Black Radicalism for the 21st Century (Zed, July 2018), Kehinde Andrews reclaims the history of the black radical movement from the stereotypes with which it has been targeted. He traces the history of its movements from resistance to slavery, through to figures such as Marcus Garvey and Malcom X, and connecting the dots to the Black Lives Matter movement of today.
To coincide with the Design Museum exhibition Hope to Nope: Graphics and politics 2008-18, Kehinde Andrews and American artist and civil rights activist Dread Scott discuss what a renewed politics of black radicalism looks like for the 21st century, and how design and visual arts can help steer it.
This event is part of the Speakers' Corner series delivered in partnership with Zed Books.
Dr Kehinde Andrews is Associate Professor of Sociology at Birmingham City University where he has been leading the development of the Black Studies Degree. His books include; Black Radicalism (forthcoming Zed Books 2018); Blackness in Britain (2016); Resisting Racism: Race, Inequality; and the Black Supplementary School Movement (2013).
