Not seen it yet, I posted an interview with the director, 1 page back.
Thanks, will give it a listen
Not surprised they're keyboard warriors. Did anyone watched this
We watched it tonight, it’s powerful.
Growing up I remember reading stories about The Mangrove weekly in the Daily Mail.
If there was a definition of white middle class male privilege the fox person is the poster boy. Is he courting this attention to get his place as a tory mp?
Long read by Gary younge, about the historical fight to suppress the minority vote.
Finished watching Small Axe last night, think it's very well made with some brilliant performances, looking forward to the other films particularly 'lovers rock' the next one.
Good read, thanks.
Article on what being “woke”truly means?
I still need to watch “I am not your negro” but this line from james Baldwin always makes me nod my head in agreement/acknowledgement of what it is to be black.
“To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time.”
Thought-provoking phrase someone shared on WhatsApp, author unknown:
“If you’ve never had the Supreme Court decide if you have the same rights as other people, you have privilege.”
always loved westerns, nice primer about the role of black cowboys in the creation of the hollywood cowboy myth.
The term cowboys was a term from enslaved cattle ranchers i found out recently
just seen this - closes on Monday in case anyone interested in responding
racism is a white issue
anyone been following small axe?
This struck a chord.
Short film on Rashan Charles who died after being stopped by police in Dalston in 2017.
Rod Charles who features in the film said after the verdict “Failures by senior police officers to make appropriate decisions after such events, doesn’t damage police and community relations for a few years, it sets it back generations”.
Important to note that the officers involved in the incident were cleared of all blame or misconduct and this is not a critic on the entire police force but a call for openness, transparency and accountability.
In a recent article in the Hackney Gazette that looks at what can be done in the wake of such events. Rod Charles calls for pressure on the home secretary to addressing thousands of existing recommendations from a litany of inspections and reviews that have not yet been implemented.
Not seen ''I'm not your negro'' either but did watch James Balwin with Nikki Giovanni
