EVENT: National Archives – The trial of the Mangrove Nine

Posted January 21st, 2016 in Forthcoming events by sally

‘The trial of the Mangrove Nine in 1970 represents a high point of the Black Panther movement in the UK and stands as a watershed moment for black activism in the struggle against institutionalised police prejudice. But what prompted the backlash of black British people against law enforcement? This talk will explore and contextualise the mounting racial tensions that sparked one of the most important show trials of the 20th century.’
