On Wednesday, March 1, 2017, the Doyle Program Event Series co-sponsored a screening of Generation Revolution with the Alwaleed Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding. This feature-length documentary follows a new generation of young activists in London including the London Black Revolutionaries, or “Black Revs”, the R Movement, and The Black Dissidents–organizations intent on furthering the fight against oppression along the lines of race, class, and gender. Following the screening, the filmmakers Usayd Younis and Cassie Quarless held a Q&A session with the audience. The discussion focused on issues that affect young black and brown communities in the UK, particularly in London, as well as the history of activism and the documentation of such efforts over time.
