‘1968 AND ITS LEGACIES’
KING'S COLLEGE LONDON
We are pleased to announce a major series of six workshops, film screenings, and a symposium to mark the 50th anniversary of the progressive mass protests of 1968. Several activists, artists, and filmmakers who came to prominence around that time will be taking part. African-American social, political, and cultural history will naturally be an important theme within the series.
