Publications

The George Padmore Institute aims to make many of its public events and archives accessible to the public through publication. To date our main publication work has focussed on the successful series of talks and conversations entitled Life Experience With Britain. In the first series of talks in 1997, seven prominent figures in Britain’s social, political and cultural life gave us insights into their experience of life with Britain — a multifaceted story of engagement with Britain as new citizens. The talks bear witness to a history of struggle for freedom from political and cultural domination, for racial and social justice, as well as a history of cultural activism and educational endeavour in the act of humanising and transcending the limitations of British society. Series one and two were published as Changing Britannia: Life Experience With Britain, in 1999, and Building Britannia: Life Experience With Britain, in 2009.
