CJSS: Radical Reading Group: Claudia Jones and Martin Luther King Jr: Part 1

Fri 17th November 2017

The NewBridge Project : Gateshead 

Nathaniel Whitfield led a reading group exploring Claudia Jones’ work and some of Martin Luther King Jr’s radical writings. In Part 1, we looked at Jones’, An End to the Neglect of the Problems of the Negro Woman! and King’s Letter from Birmingham Jail.

Part 2 of the Radical Reading Group will take place on Sunday 19 November, 1-3pm at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art. You can attend either or both of the sessions.



Claudia Jones, An End to the Neglect of the Problems of the Negro Woman!

Martin Luther Kind Jr, Letter from Birmingham Jail


The Claudia Jones Space Station is part of Freedom City and has been commissioned by The NewBridge Project in partnership with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art.

The Claudia Jones Space Station is a temporary, living monument named after pioneering Trinidad-born journalist and activist Claudia Jones.

Over the course of four days, The Claudia Jones Space Station will perform an experiment in community formation, involving visitors, collaborators and participants from throughout the region.

Inspired by the model of the Space Station – where multiple experiments take place simultaneously – the CJSS invites you to take part in a range of workshops, events and screenings organised in partnership with artists, activists and collectives concerned with questions of social justice, from Newcastle/Gateshead and beyond. Private or individual meetings, conversations and exchanges can also take place within the space.



2 - 4pm
