The erasure of history invalidates the existence of the oppressed and acknowledging their sufferings. Britain, the worlds leading colonizer whom by 1913 its 'Empire' held sway over 412 million people, which was 23% of the world population at the time. Wild? We agree.
Over the years in hopes of clearing up its conquering and oppressive history, Britain has painted this ubiquitous imagery of unity and non-oppressive behavior up until BREXIT happened in 2017. Allow us to take you back into time, the mid 60s to be exact it is just after Malcolm X is assassinated on 21 February, 1965 and leaders Darcus Howe, Linton Kwesi Johnson and the late Olive Morris are fighting for the rights of black persons and those of diaspora rights in the UK from 1965 to 1972. All documented by their in-house photographer Neil Kenlock.
