Date : 4th October 2013 – 2pm (free)
A talk by Marika Sherwood to mark Black History Month: Struggles in Manchester before and after the 1945 Pan-African Congress
Africans have lived in the Manchester area at least since the late 18th century and have struggled against racism and for freedom and independence for their countries of origin for at least the past 100 years – perhaps culminating in the 1945 Pan-African Congress, which was held in Manchester.
Marika Sherwood’s book Manchester & the 1945 Pan-African Congress has been reprinted and will be available to purchase.
2pm; admission free; light refreshments afterwards.
