During Black History Month, the National Union of Journalists and its Black Members' Council host a free event celebrating the life and work of trailblazer Claudia Jones.
A heroine of modern times - a journalist, activist and campaigner - perhaps best known as one of the founding members of The Notting Hill Carnival and the first black newspaper, The West Indian Gazette and Afro-Asian Caribbean News, this remarkable black woman made a significant contribution to society.
The NUJ would like to invite you to join us in remembering her life and the continuing struggle for equality today.
This year's guest speaker is Kerry-Anne Mendoza.
Kerry-Anne is editor-in-chief of the progressive news site The Canary. She is known for creating one of the UK’s top independent political blogs Scriptonite Daily, for authoring the best-seller Austerity and for her Middle East reporting (notably Operation Protective Edge from Gaza through the Summer of 2014). Her passions are politics, economics and current affairs, which she examines with the basic question: “How do we build a world that works for everyone?”
ALL WELCOME: the event is free, but you will need to reserve your place with a ticket from the EVENTBRITE website to gain admission.
