“Malcolm X and the Genealogy of Black Power” by Dr Tom Davies

8 February, 2023 @ 19:00 - 21:00

An 2022-23 Historical Association event

Young black militants calling for ‘Black Power’ in mid-1966 were famously referred to as ‘the angry children of Malcolm X’ – but what was Malcolm X’s impact on the Black Power movement that emerged after his assassination? And what can we learn about the longer history of Black Power from Malcolm X’s life? This talk will explore these questions and explain how Malcolm X’s life offers key insights into both the evolution of the African American freedom struggle in the early twentieth century and the development of the Black Power movement in the years after his death.

HA meetings will be in the Birchall Hall, Queen’s College, Taunton, by kind permission of the Headmaster, Mr Julian Noad.

The lectures begin at 7.30pm (door open at 7.00 pm) and will finish at about 8.45pm.

Entry fee – £2 per lecture (free to students)

GRADING OF WALKS

Events are graded from 1-4 in difficulty. The grading is found in the event description in the calendar on this page. Keep in mind that a change in weather conditions can make a walk more difficult than anticipated. All walks and activities demand a basic level of fitness, suitable footwear and waterproof clothing.

1 Easy – generally even ground with a few gentle slopes; no special fitness needed.  Comfortable footwear required.

2 Moderate – for reasonably fit people, may include unsurfaced rural paths and tracks, moderate slopes, uneven surfaces, steps and stiles. Walking shoes/boots required.

3 Strenuous – for fit, experienced walkers, will include hills, uneven surfaces, tracks and may include muddy terrain. Walking boots and waterproof clothing are essential.

4 Confined spaces – including caves and attics. Locations may be dusty, slippery and dark.

Activity leaders carry out a risk assessment beforehand. Participants are required to provide emergency contact details before taking part in an activity – this information is destroyed by the group leader after the activity has taken place.
