Nov. 14 2016: Living History With Tony Thomas: From South London Estates To Community Organising In London & Beyond. Tony Thomas, author of ‘Community Organiser: A Story Of Community Organising In London’ (Reklaw Education, 2016), will talk about his role within London’s community and political activism in the 2000s, from leaving school without qualifications to post-graduate studies, selling Afrocentric resources, building the Hip-Hop Generation UK collective to internatiional renown and its demise following the demolition job done by Andrew Gillingham‘s ‘Standard’ articles on Ken Livingstone‘s mayoral adviser Lee Jasper and projects associated with him, to shedding his dreadlocks, sharing panels with the likes of Simon Woolley and Rev. Jesse Jackson, to getting Barack Obama and Bill Clinton to sign his copies of their autobiographies.
