London Black History Walks and Black History Studies are among the organisers of the 30th anniversary of the Black People's Day of Action tomorrow. They say:
A collective of community groups will mark 30 years of Black resistance in the UK with events throughout 2011 to recognise the significant civil rights events of 1981 ( New Cross Fire: 13 Dead and Nothing Said , "Black Peoples Day of Action", Brixton Uprisings ). This is the first of a series of events.
