As part of London History Day 2018, join us to explore the history of protest on the streets of London from the second half of the twentieth century to today, and its documentation by photographers.

At this special evening event there will be an opportunity to view original prints and digital reproductions of protest photography, alongside pamphlets, placards, banners and badges, through a pop-up archive display.

With an introduction to the collections from Stefan Dickers, Special Collections and Archives Manager, hear from photographers who have captured images of iconic protests in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, and discover the importance of photography as a tool for sharing political struggles with a wider audience and documenting the courage of those who have campaigned over the last 70 years.
