Generation Revolution

  • slideshow_large


The powerful story of how a new generation of black and brown activists are changing the social and political landscape in the capital and beyond. Following an exciting new breed of organisations as well as the young Londoners that are part of them.
The London Black Revolutionaries, or ‘Black Revs’, have a predilection for dramatic, raucous, direct action. 'R Movement' challenge the idea of the ‘Staid and Serious’ political activist and 'The Black Dissidents' are a new organisation intent on furthering the fight against oppression along the lines of race, class and gender.
A chronicle of the evolution of characters as they experience personal and political awakenings, breakthroughs and, at times, disillusionment. A unique and original glimpse into the rewarding but difficult path that must be trodden in the struggle for personal, social and political liberation.
