Long Live Our England at MMU Birley Campus, Manchester, 16 October 2017, from £0.00 - Book now
Back in 1972, a group of black teenagers from Manchester’s Moss Side area were interviewed by BBC North West for the film Long Live Our England. In it, they talk about their experiences of racial discrimination – at school, in the army and by the police – and their sense of isolation as a result.
Coinciding with Black History Month, this screening is a pertinent collaboration between the North West Film Archive and the Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Race Relations Resource Centre and Education Trust, both based at Manchester Central Library, as Britain, 45 years later, continues to grapple with racial discrimination.
Also screening is Strangers Yet – a follow-up programme made 10 years later – and both screenings will be followed by a discussion about the issues raised.
