Music Panel Discussion
The Defining Tracks of a Moment (1976 – 81)

Wed 4 November, 7 - 9pm

Rivington Place

London, UK

Event, £5

Guest speakers: Syd Shelton (photographer), Professor Carol Tulloch (curator), Kate Webb (critic and journalist) and Professor Paul Gilroy, chaired by Mark Sealy director of Autograph ABP.

Listen to the tracks that define a moment and hear from the people who were there! Between 1976 and 1981, the movement Rock Against Racism (RAR) confronted racist ideology in the streets, parks and town halls of Britain. RAR was formed by a collective of musicians and political activists to fight fascism and racism through music.

We’ve invited 4 people to select the tracks that, for them, define the Rock Against Racism moment. The music will lead onto broader discussions around the social and economic conditions of the time and what the RAR movement ignited up and down the country.
