Join us this Black History Month for a screening of Generation Revolution, a feature-length documentary film that tells the powerful story of London’s new generation of Black and Brown activists who are set on changing the social and political landscape in the capital and beyond.
The film vividly chronicles the evolution of characters as they experience personal and political awakenings, breakthroughs and, at times, disillusionment. Generation Revolution offers a unique and original glimpse into the rewarding but difficult path that must be trodden in the struggle for personal, social and political liberation.
Generation Revolution is being used as a platform to facilitate discussions about the issues that affect young black and brown communities both in the UK. The screening will be followed by an opportunity to discuss the many issues approached in the film, such as the crises of homelessness, gentrification and racism.
This screening is taking place in partnership between the Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Race Relations Resource Centre and the Race, Roots & Resistance Collective in the Department of History at the University of Manchester.
