Claudia Jones Memorial Lecture - 11/10/18
THIS YEAR'S Claudia Jones Memorial Lecture, organised by the NUJ's Black Members' Council and taking place during Black History Month, is on Thursday 11 October.
The 2018 lecture is titled "How can we build a better world that works for everyone?" The speaker is Kelly-Anne Mendoza, editor-in-chief of sometimes-controversial site The Canary, author of bestseller Austerity, founder of political blog Scriptonite Daily and Middle East reporter who covered Operation Protective Edge in Gaza throughout 2014.
The annual lecture commemorates Trinidadian journalist and activist Claudia Jones, who after being deported from the USA for Communist Party membership was an instigator of the Notting Hill Carnival.
