About the event

The late 60s and early 70s witnessed the flourishing of Black Power, a movement of major global impact. In Britain, black radical campaigns were monitored by Special Branch, MI5, the Joint Intelligence Committee and the Home Office, in an attempt to frustrate and ultimately demobilise the movement. In this talk, Robin Bunce will use sources from our collection to reconstruct the state’s campaign against black radicals in the UK, from the trial of Malcolm X in 1967, through the prosecution of Egbuna and the Mangrove Nine, to the trial of the Old Bailey Three in 1972.
