Join the Race, Ethnicity and Postcolonial Studies Network (REPS) for an afternoon of talks and celebration to mark the 30th anniversary of There Ain’t No Black in the Union Jack with its author Paul Gilroy and friends.
Published in in 1987, There Ain't No Black is one of the most influential books on race, racism and blackness in Britain, and among the most widely read. In this book, Paul Gilroy explores the racial and classed contours of post-Enoch Powell Britain opening up questions on diasporic formation, British racism and nationalism, and the revolutionary potential of black Atlantic culture. The book emerges from an extraordinarily rich fissure of intellectual and cultural production whose fire still burns today.
