As Black and Brown and migrant working class communities continue to feel the increasing squeeze of British colonial state oppression and exploitation, in the aftermath of the Grenfell state massacre, as Notting Hill Carnival itself sees pushes to basically annull it by removal out of the historic community of Ladbroke Grove: the Malcolm X Movement brings together this event and conversation exploring the histories of Carnival, its role as resistant cultural expressions of our experiences, and what is the outlook for the Carnival weekend in the and generally.
