A new oral history project on anti-racist activity in London wants to record the experiences of those active in anti-racist struggles.
Eastside Community Heritage, an oral history charity, is recording and archiving oral history interviews with those involved in key anti-racist events such as the Battle of Lewisham and movements like the Rock Against Racism. The interviews will result in a range of publications including a new website with video and audio material.
Eastside historian, Joel Blackledge commented: ‘London has a strong heritage of anti-racist and anti-fascist campaigning, but unless people’s personal memories and experiences are documented, they’ll be lost to the next generation. That’s why it’s so important that we record them now.’
