Julie Begum spoke as a part of the panel entitled ‘Grassroots’, on the grassroots legacies of Stepney Words on experience in antiracist activism in the 1980s, particularly in the ways that we participated in amplifying the voices of working-class Bengali/Bangladeshi people in Tower Hamlets.
“Nadia and I are very grateful for your excellent contribution to the Stepney Words 50 Years On celebration. I must say that I was very impressed how you managed to tell us so much in the short time that we had available. It was a powerful and emotional day, and I’m so pleased that you were part of it, and that you enjoyed it!”
