LUX/ Highgate Cemetery Talks: Claudia Jones @ LUX - online

LUX/ Highgate Cemetery Talks: Claudia Jones @ LUX - online

Adjacent to Waterlow Park where LUX is based is Highgate Cemetery, one of London’s finest cemeteries and the final resting place of a number of extraordinary people. During the lockdown when visiting the cemetery is difficult, LUX, in partnership with the Cemetery is organising a series of online virtual visits with thinkers and artists reflecting on life and work of some of the inspirational people buried there.

The first event is a discussion on the life and legacy of Claudia Jones (1915–1964), the pioneering and inspirational Afro-Caribbean radical intellectual, dedicated communist, and feminist who is buried in Highgate Cemetery close to Karl Marx. We will be joined by Carole Boyce Davies, Professor of Africana Studies and English at Cornell University and Claudia Jones scholar, author of Left of Karl Marx: The Political Life of Black Communist Claudia Jones (2008) and editor of a reader of Jones’ writing Claudia Jones: Beyond Containment (2010) and artist Rhea Storr, who in her recent film works has investigated carnival as a space of both celebration and protest, exploring their social structures, costume and language.

 

We are pleased to share the recorded conversation with Carole Boyce Davies and Rhea Storr on our website. The conversation is also accompanied by Rhea Storr’s recent work Bragging Rights (2019).
