The Northern Carnival Against the Nazis a rally and concert held on 15th July 1978 in Moss Side, Manchester was a defining moment in establishing anti-racism in the city and beyond. The 15,000 people who marched across town and the 40,000 people who danced in Alexandra Park that day didnt just make racism no longer respectable. They made it uncool.
To celebrate this pivotal moment in Manchesters fight against racism, Manchester Digital Music Archive and the Ahmed Iqbal Race Relations Resource Centre have brought together the original organisers of the Carnival for a panel discussion and all-day event exploring its impact and continuing relevance today.
