After a screening of 'Belly of the Beast', a presentation and Q&A with Dr Shantella Sherman on modern eugenics, human rights and resistance.

But so long as the conversation is strictly surface, those most in peril and vulnerable to eugenic legislation never gain an opportunity to advocate on their own behalves.” Dr Shantella Sherman

Kenya Uprisings, Through the Leopard's Gaze  |  1 September 2021

In the 1950s the Land and Freedom Army in Kenya fought against British invaders who had massacred local people and stolen their land.

US Human Rights Violations and the Soweto Uprisings  |  16 June 2021

On 16th June 1976 thousands of Black schoolchildren took to the streets to demonstrate against racism in South Africa. The state response was to shoot the children with automatic weapons and imprison those who did not die. In 2021, there have been multiple video examples of Black deaths in police custody and a legal system which offers no sanction. What is the history behind these situations and what can be done to challenge them? Are there parallels in the UK and how is foreign policy affected?
