Usayd Younis and Cassie Quarless’ urgent, impassioned documentary follows a new generation of black activists as they fight for social and political change in London and beyond. Filtered through the lens of five young activists, the film records their rewarding but challenging paths through the struggle for personal, social and political liberation.
Focusing on The London Black Revolutionaries (Black Revs), R Movement and the Black Dissidents, the film provides a first-hand insight into what cooperative, politicised engagement in social change means to a generation of young Londoners, fighting for egalitarian ideals and against a discriminating society.
