Black power and the state

Black power and the state

The late 60s and early 70s witnessed the flourishing of Black Power, a movement of major global impact. In Britain, black radical campaigns were monitored by Special Branch, MI5, the Joint Intelligence Committee and the Home Office, in an attempt to frustrate and ultimately demobilise the movement. In this talk, Robin Bunce will use sources from our collection to reconstruct the state’s campaign against black radicals in the UK, from the trial of Malcolm X in 1967, through the prosecution of Egbuna and the Mangrove Nine, to the trial of the Old Bailey Three in 1972.

Sylvia Pankhurst: suffragette, socialist and scourge of the empire

From militant suffragette at the beginning of the 20th century to campaigner against colonialism in Africa after the Second World War, Sylvia Pankhurst dedicated her life to fighting oppression and injustice. Katherine Connelly will examine Pankhurst’s role at the forefront of significant developments in the history of radical politics. Guiding us through Pankhurst’s activism – from her teens as a member of the Independent Labour Party and her time as a leading suffragette before the First World War, to her revolutionary socialist, anti-fascist and anti-imperialist campaigning in later years.

Prime Ministers and spies: from Asquith to Thatcher

At the start of the 20th century, Prime Ministers and espionage had few ties. As the decades went by, their relationships developed; from Asquith’s Secret Service Bureau, through Churchill’s innovative wartime regime, to the role of intelligence in Cold War decision-making. Speakers Richard Aldrich, Professor of International Security at the University of Warwick, and Rory Cormac, Associate Professor of International Relations at the University of Nottingham, are coauthors of The Black Door. They will explore how the relationship between Number 10 and the Security Services evolved, using records from The National Archives’ collection.

Season’s Greetings

Season’s Greetings

The whole family is coming for Christmas. Brace yourself.

It’s the Christmas family get-together at the Bunker home. The men watch TV and go down the pub. The women do all the cooking and look after the kids. It’s the same every year. Except this time.

Unlucky in love Rachel brings along handsome young novelist Clive, hoping to transform their new friendship into something more. But she’s not the only one who wouldn’t mind getting near the mistletoe with him.

Sister Belinda – stuck in a stale marriage and pining for some excitement – finds Clive’s charms hard resist. And alcoholic sister-in-law Phyllis wouldn’t mind getting more familiar with this mildly famous writer too – especially after one too many drinks. 

Will any of their husbands’ realise what’s going on? Loose cannon Uncle Harvey certainly has his suspicions about this new chap – and a career in security has taught him how to handle these situations.
Season’s Greetings is the perfect antidote to the onslaught of forced Christmas cheer. If you’re not familiar with the play, think ‘Love Actually’ for people who aren’t that fond of Christmas (or Hugh Grant). And after watching Ayckbourn’s entertaining comedy who knows, perhaps your own Christmas won’t feel quite so bad.

Tickets: £14 (£12 conc, £7 under-16/student). Final Friday and Saturday: £18 (£15 conc, £9.50 under-16/student). First night only: £7

The plan to partition

In June 1947 it was announced that British India would partition into two new nation states – India and Pakistan. Yet when the expected date of British withdrawal from India was brought forward a year, communications broke down and the violence that ensued proved catastrophic. Iqbal Husain (The National Archives), Mandeep Samra and Sonyia Jamal (Let’s Go Yorkshire), and A’Ishah Waheed (Patchwork Archivists) will speak and offer a space for questions and reflections on this momentous event in history. An accompanying display of records from our collection will include the voices of some of the key players, including Jinnah and Gandhi.

Cromwell and communications

The legacy of the Reformation was not simply a transformation of the religious landscape of England, it also presented the opportunity for change and progression in other areas, such as government and the development of the printing industry. Join Nick Barratt, an expert in the era from the University of London, and Marianne Wilson, our Reformation record specialist, for a workshop exploring new interpretations of key documents relating to Thomas Cromwell, communications and the Reformation period. This will provide an exciting opportunity to consider key themes, such as what was lost from medieval culture with the changes in government and communications, and what was gained moving forward.

Zeppelin! The 'silent raid' of October 1917

Zeppelin!.jpg

In 1917, Germany developed a new class of Zeppelin capable of flying at 20,000 feet – beyond the range of Britain’s defence systems. Although free from attack, the Zeppelin crews had new battles to fight – altitude sickness, sub-zero temperatures, and unpredictable weather. In the 11-Zeppelin raid in October 1917, the civilian population suffered 90 casualties but fierce winds conspired to defeat the raiders. Drawing on official documents from our collection, Ian Castle will explore this, the last great Zeppelin raid of the First World War.
