We hope you can join the Young Fabians at 8.30pm on Thursday 21 October for a conversation between David Lammy MP and Amen Tesfay, as part of our Black History Month programme.
You can join this Zoom event here.
David Lammy is one of the most well-known public figures, and one of the most adept communicators, in today's Labour Party. He entered Parliament as MP for Tottenham in 2000 aged 27, making him the youngest member of the Commons until 2003. He soon became a minister working on culture, higher education and public health in the Blair and Brown governments, and has served as Shadow Secretary of State for Justice since 2020.
Throughout his career he's been a powerful voice for liberation and against racism. In 2017 he led the Lammy Review into BAME Representation in the Criminal Justice System, and he's been at the forefront of the campaign for housing justice both before and after the Grenfell tragedy.
In this event, David will speak with 1987 Caucus activist, Open Labour BAME Rep, and Young Fabians member Amen Tesfay about his career in politics before holding a short Q&A.
