Darren Hughes of the Electoral Reform Society will do the easy job of critically appraising Westminster as is, and go on to suggest alternatives that would work a whole lot better.

In Search of Paul Robeson

Tuesday 27th June @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4RL United Kingdom
In Search of Paul Robeson

Paul Robeson was a modern renaissance man: lawyer, linguist, actor, professional athlete, civil rights activist and one of the greatest singers of the twentieth century. The son of an escaped slave, Robeson became an international superstar before his socialist political convictions brought him undone in the Mccarthy era.

Author Jeff Sparrow tells Robeson’s story and explores his relevance to contemporary political movements in a new book: No Way But This. He will be in conversation with journalist Ellie Mae O’Hagan.
