Requiem for a Black Soul

The Selecter

WHEN I saw The Selecter play in Devon recently, their acoustic set was a history not only of the ska movement in Britain, but also the history of the struggle against racism and the part played by Two-Tone bands.

They performed many of the songs on the album Requiem for a Black Soul, released last year.

A wonderful album for all anti-racists to savour and draw inspiration from.

Between 6 January and 19 February The Place presents over 100 dance companies.

It is a real opportunity to see up and coming choreographers and dancers perform new work.

The Tin Drum, which will be performed on 11 January, is based on the novel of the same name by Gunter Grass.

Using dance, theatre and music, it looks at the way one boy deals with the rise of fascism in Germany.

Ken Sprague Trust

We have set up a Ken Sprague Trust Fund to promote his art and his example as a leading labour movement artist.

We also wish to hold an annual award for the best designed poster or cartoon on a social justice, solidarity or peace theme.

We have produced T-shirts with Ken’s fishes design, and all profits go to the fund.
