At the London Radical Bookfair & Alternative Press Takeover one day event, we will be holding a panel on the experience and legacy of radical anti-imperialist, Black and Asian publishing of previous generations, and the continuing challenges and importance of developing publishing today for the struggle of the GlobalSouth against white supremacy and imperialism and for our collective Liberation.

We are delighted to have on this panel Eric Huntley, who with Jessica Huntley and their Bogle Overture books (and the related Walter Rodney bookshop which used to be in West Ealing, in West London) helped to organise with several other Black and Asian radical publishers the International Book Fair of Radical Black and Third World Books between 1982 - 1995.

The challenges remain for those interested in the on-going Liberation struggles of the GlobalSouth to develop analysis, culture, theory, history and fictional and children's books in relation to the newer generations in new political contexts of the world struggle with new forms of publishing especially in the realm of the digital age.
