Wylam Institute / Saturday 19th March
Presented in collaboration with Wylam Community Cinema
With the National Front on the rise and musicians like Eric Clapton supporting racist views from politicians, Rock Against Racism was formed by a handful of like-minded individuals in London, 1976. Branches were set up by supporters all across the country, with its members united by its central tenet: love music, hate racism. ‘White Riot’ is a timely examination of the history of racism in the UK, as well as providing a demonstration of the positive impact music can have.
