TitleSearchlight Magazine
Extent2 boxes
DescriptionSearchlight is an anti-racist and anti-fascist magazine set up to campaign against the influence of far-right parties such as the National Front, primarily by exposing their fascist and Nazi sympathies. There were indirect links between Searchlight and the Centre - Paul Gilroy's partner, Vron Ware, for example, edited the magazine in the early 1980s, the same time that Gilroy was working on the seminal 'There Ain't No Black in the Union Jack'. Both Searchlight and the wider anti-racist movement of the late-70s, particularly Rock Against Racism, were important influences on the intellectual and political work of the race and politics sub-group that Gilroy had helped establish.
