#RememberOluwale – Blacks Britannica

20th September - 7:30 pm

Blacks Britannica – Above a still from the film. Photographer thought to be David Koff.

Made in 1978, this hard-hitting documentary on racism and resistance in Britain was immediately subjected to suppression, censorship and a US court battle that lasted more than three years.

In one sequence of the film, writer and activist Ron Phillips tells the story, on screen for the first time, of David Oluwale’s life, and his murder by two Leeds policemen in 1969.

Arthur France MBE, Black Power pioneer and campaigner for social justice, and Margaret Henry of Postcolonial Films, the researcher for Blacks Britannica, will lead the Q&A after the film.

This screening is organised by RememberOluwale and supported by TheLeedsBlackFilm Club.

Tickets: £5 waged, £2.50 unwaged.

Blacks Britannica : Covering the history of British racism from the Empire to the late 1970s, grassroots community and cultural activists focus on the resistance of the Black community to escalating attacks — by organised fascist elements on the streets, by the police, and by successive British governments. Made on the eve of Thatcher, Blacks Britannica provides an invaluable historical record of those struggles. Many of its insights and analyses continue to resonate 40 years on.

Director: David Off. BFI listing here UK distribution by Postcolonial Films Ltd, London.
