Maxwell Mutanda presents a 1978 film ‘Blacks Britannica’ which was banned in Britain upon its release looking at structural racism in Britian.
Banned in Britain for its supposedly incendiary message, this riveting documentary offers a searing analysis of structural racism in Britain.
Featuring incisive contributions from activists and everyday citizens, BLACKS BRITANNICA paints a devastating portrait of the ways that nearly every pillar of British society—from law enforcement to the educational system to the media—has worked to create a Black underclass. Meanwhile, the growing resistance of a new generation of Black Britons is reflected in the blistering live performance from UK roots reggae act Steel Pulse that bookends the film. (credit: Criterion)
