A selection of conversations, talks and films from the public programme as part of the exhibition War Inna Babylon: The Community’s Struggle for Truth and Rights, which originally exhibited from 7 July to 26 September 2021.
The exhibition was the first of its kind to accurately assess the conditions of Black lives across Britain. The extensive public programme included film screenings, community educational groups, talks, cultural events, performances, and a digital presentation focusing on the interrelation between artificial intelligence and racism.
One of the most successful exhibitions in our 75-year history, War Inna Babylon more than doubled daily attendance records at the ICA. In collaboration with Tottenham Rights, we’re making all public events free to stream so anyone unable to attend the programme can experience this historic exhibition online.
A special thanks go to Stafford Scott of Tottenham Rights, curators Kamara Scott and Rianna Jade Parker, and designer Abi Wright, who painstakingly pieced together this essential portrait of Black resistance to racism in the UK.
