Archive Revelations III:

June Givanni Pan African Cinema Archive and the Young Historians Project

Present the YHP film ‘We Are Our Own Liberators’.

This film narrates the legacy of the Black Liberation Front (BLF), A British Black Power organisation active between 1971-1993. Through testimonies, the main BLF initiatives: The Grassroots newspaper; supplementary schooling; black bookshops; Ujima housing association; international links and support for African liberation struggles are explored alongside the major challenges, of state attacks, ideological divisions and gender issues faced by the organisation. The event includes a Q&A with YHP Team.

YHP created this film, alongside an exhibition, as a broad step in consolidating the history of 20th century black activism in Britain. YHP are a not-for-profit organisation formed of 16-25 year olds that encourages young people of African and Caribbean descent to engage with Black British History.

The JGPACA spans over 30 years of Pan African cinema which includes films, audio recordings, images, paper-based materials and posters. Screenings also help to make our films as widely accessible as possible and help us to promote the joy of Pan African cinema.  These screenings support the work and development of the archive.
