From Resistance to Transcendence: Remembering the Black People's Day of Action

On 2nd March 1981, 43 days after the tragedy of the New Cross Fire, 20,000 people came together in Lewisham to march to Central London in protest at the state’s lack of interest in properly investigating what many people within the community felt was a clear case of racially motivated murder. The march was recognised at the time as the ‘largest mass movement for racial justice on British soil’.
