Beyond the Photo

Beyond the Photo

We celebrate London History Day with a new film that explores the issues faced by a community in the 1970’s. Directed by Cathy Hassan, Beyond the Photo (BTP) consists of individual stories recording the realities of Black British lives in the 1970s. Personal experiences are linked by themes of a discriminatory police culture, winter of discontent, poor inhumane housing, and rising voices of socially disgruntled young black men and women fueled by radical sentiment to end the violence of systemic racism. BTP explores the journey of one photo opening up to reveal social and historical narratives from times when “Sons of Empire” gave rise to fears of a black invasion, to a social, cultural and political awareness profoundly shaped by the US Civil rights movement and black activism. The documentary features interviews with family members of the Community leader Olive Morris, and the Civil rights activist Darcus Howe’s, one of his final interviews. Historian, Dr Robin Bunce, Homerton Co
