Darcus Howe’s Devil’s Advocate Part 2
Darcus Howe (born 26 February 1943) is a British broadcaster, writer, and civil liberties campaigner. Originally from Trinidad, Howe arrived in England intending to study law, where he joined the British Black Panthers, a group named in sympathy with the eponymous US organisation. He came to public attention in 1970 as one of the Mangrove Nine, when he marched to the police station in Notting Hill, London, to protest against police raids of the Mangrove restaurant, and again in 1981 when he organised a 20,000-strong “Black People’s March” in protest at the handling of the investigation into the New Cross Fire, in which 13 black teenagers died.
