*The New Cross Massacre and the Brixton Uprising*

The turning point in the fight for Black liberation in the UK.  A racist
attack fire killed 13 young people.  Shortly thereafter the Black community
of Brixton rose up as did many other cities in the UK.  This should be
studied in every Black Studies program.

Today in the US is also the Martin Luther King Holiday.
