This site has been created (June 2014) to replace the emailed Diary of news and events I sent to a number of specialist groups of people inc. British Black History, Croydon, Labour History, Lambeth, North East and Wandsworth as well as a general group of readers.
This blog site will contain details of events and news highlighting initiatives in history from below, people’s history, radical history, labour movement history, mutuality, British black history, slavery and abolition, aspects of cultural, Battersea, and Wandsworth, Lambeth and North East people’s history in particular, and details of events elsewhere which are linked to the theme.
Items on social action will include issues in Battersea and Wandsworth, Croydon, Kennington and Wandsworth, and and such matters as planning, anti-racism, community action, environment, essential services and poverty.
The blog is complemented by a separate blog which will from now on be for discussion pieces:
and by postings on Croydon Citizen
