- A conversation with Dr Lez Henry

Date: Sat 14th Sept 6pm

Venue: Housmans Radical Bookshop
5 Caledonian Road, N1 9DX London

Following on from the very successful conversation with Black Star Crescent Moon author Sohail Daulatzai, Sons of Malcolm brings you an event with one of london's finest pro-resistance intellectuals - Dr Lez Henry - will be exploring and discussing white supremacy / whiteness at this event, a subject on which Dr Lez has written a book which will be available for purchase.

The event will take the form of a conversation between Sons of Malcolm's Sukant Chandan and Dr Lez, with those attending also taking part in this conversation.

In the last several years as the white power structure through government policies, media and the 'entertainment' industry have been intensifying their aims against Black and Brown people and to keep the poor divided and weak, there has also been a rise in interest in whiteness / white supremacy amongst activists and radical-minded circles.

There is much debate and differences over what exactly white supremacy is; to what extent are white and non-white people complicit in this; can non-whites ally with whites in a common struggle against imperialism and white supremacy; what are the roots of white supremacy in europe and many other questions.

Of course, all these issues will not and cannot be exhausted in one event like this, but this event intends to be a place where these things can be explored critically with mutual respect between those taking place.

This event is not for anyone with a negative and unconstructive approach, but for people who want to build positively and effectively against white supremacy in a spirit of Peace and Love in our struggle between the strugglers and our peoples and communities.

Attending this event will mean that you are giving permission to be filmed.

Places are limited, and attendance will be based on first come first serve. THERE ARE ONLY FORTY-FIVE PLACES SO BE PUNCTUAL AS THIS EVENT IS STARTING BANG ON TIME.

Light refreshments will be available free.
