Diane Nash Headlines Slavery Remembrance Day Festival (UK)





Civil Rights activist Diane Nash launched Liverpool’s Slavery Remembrance Day Festival (21-23 August) with a free memorial lecture on Friday evening at the Town Hall.

Nash’s hour-long talk, Reflections on the American Civil Rights Movement, focused on her “agaphic energy” during the struggle and was greatly received by a packed council chamber.

This was Nash’s first visit to the UK, and the 71-year-old is set to depart immediately on what is a whistle-blowing tour.

In speaking at Liverpool, Nash follows in the footsteps of Jesse Jackson who delivered a public lecture in the city last December.
