History News At 3 June

Black Cultural Archives Re-Opens

The BCA  reading room has re-oepned to the public Thursdays-Saturdays, 12:30-16:30 and is currently fully booked for most of June. It hopes that once the COVID restrictions are lifted we can return to more fulsome operating hours but we are likely to retain our Thursday-Saturday opening for the reading room.’

Women Slave Revolts

Part graphic novel, part memoir, Wake is an imaginative tour-de-force that tells the story of women-led slave revolts and chronicles scholar Rebecca Hall’s efforts to uncover the truth about these women warriors who, until now, have been left out of the historical record.

Archer & Saklatvala

Sacha Ismael took this picture ‘to honour these two UK “BAME” socialist pioneers and the movements they were part of. (The pictured pamphlet on Saklatvala is by me and you can buy here: https://www.workersliberty.org/sak-pamphlet. The one on Archer is by Sean Creighton; I would also highly recommend; you can order by emailing sean.creighton1947@btinternet.com.)’

He adds that ‘as a young man, Saklatvala was involved in plague vaccination efforts in his native Bombay. That’s actually quite an amazing story too (another name check, Waldemar Haffkine)’
