The legacy of New Beacon Books, the UK's first black publisher and bookshop

When New Beacon Books was founded in north London in 1966 by John La Rose and Sarah White, the UK’s first black publisher and bookshop looked to create a space for activism to educate, inspire and bridge the gap in knowledge about the African Diaspora, politics and culture between the generations. Since then, many political and cultural organisations have come and gone, actively pursuing the same goals as New Beacon. So, how are things now for Britain and its multi-ethnic communities? Renowned activist and educationalist Professor Gus John, widely recognised for his unflinching work to equalise the British education system for all, explores some of these issues in his keynote talk.
