Over the last four months, Bradford-born creatives Javaad Alipoor and Tanya Vital have created a new podcast, exploring how anti-racism in the UK today has been shaped by a rich history of activism and resistance.

Throughout the series, they were joined by expert guests to discuss some of the epic stories of communities around the UK who have stood up against racism and imperialism – from the Asian Youth Movement to William Cuffay and the Chartists.

In this chaired discussion, Javaad and Tanya will be looking back on the podcast, discussing the history of anti-racism in the UK, asking hard questions about what’s happening now and imagining what our future could look like.

You can find the podcast 0n Apple Podcasts and Spotify by searching for The Colour of Our Politics.

The Colour of Our Politics is supported by Bradford Literature Festival and Theatre in the Mill.

To book for this event you’ll be taken through to the Bradford Theatres website. Please note that the £2 booking fee will be deducted at the point at sale.
