NEW: Black History Courses
Black Seafarers and Revolutionary Politics

Tuesdays, 6 September - 4 October 2016, 7pm - 9pm 

Led by expert historian and curator S. I. Martin, the Black Seafarers and Revolutionary Politics 5-week course will reassess the forgotten traditions and communities of Black mariners. This course will give you an opportunity to critically examine the relationship between service at sea and social mobility, and the connections between seafaring experiences and the African diaspora’s contribution to abolition, radicalism, and political leadership.

Drawing on archive materials, accounts and research you will gain an in-depth understanding of the Black seafarers everyday experiences by examining their autobiographies, which chronicle the development and rise of their political thought, and settlement in Africa, North America, Britain and the Caribbean.

Course lecturer: S. I. Martin
