About this Event

An online zoom lecture from Dr Robert Henderson, Honorary Research Fellow at Queen Mary, University of London and author of 'The Spark that Lit the Revolution: Lenin in London & the Politics that Changed the World' (I B Tauris, 2020).

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin visited London on six occasions at the beginning of the twentieth century and it was in this city, where Marx wrote Das Kapital, that the roots of Lenin's political thought took shape.

Bob tells the story for the first time of Lenin's intriguing relationship with the enigmatic Apollinariya Yakubova – a revolutionary known to her comrades as the 'primeval force of the Black Earth'.

Drawing on original archive research for his book, he will reveal Lenin's London-based accomplices and political rivals, and shed new light on his world-view – one which would have such a crucial impact on the twentieth century.

Those who register will receive an email 24 hours before the event is scheduled with details of the zoom meeting.
