BLACKS BRITANNICA

USA, 1978 (MIFF 1979)

Director: David Koff

Blacks Britannica presents an analysis, from a black, working class perspective, of the systematic practice of racism in Britain. It reflects the growing militancy of the black community in response to continuing attacks upon it both by fascist groups on the streets, and by the State itself.
