On My Mind (10/09/2018)

 

“This film delves into the radical history of Britain’s first black bookshop which was founded by John La Rose and Sarah White in 1966. As well as creating a much-needed space for black communities to access and publish their own literature, it helped support important campaigns such as the Caribbean Artists Movement, the Black Parents Movement as well as playing a pivotal role in the historic Black Peoples Day of Action.”
