Event description

Description

Every Cook Can Govern: The life works & impact of C.L.R. James interweaves never-before-seen footage of C.L.R. James himself with personal contributions from those who knew him and astute historical and political analysis from leading scholars of his work.

The result is an epic feature-length documentary which grapples with issues from colonialism to cricket, from slavery to Shakespeare, from Marxism to the movies and from reading to revolution.

The film’s unique production history – crowd-funded, crowd-featured and crowd-filmed with over 200 volunteer camera operators, presenters and researchers – does credit to James’ conviction that every cook can govern. 

This screening is part of a series of events organised by London South Bank University to mark Black History Month 2016.
