ELLA BAKER SCHOOL TRAINING MATERIALS
1. The training session will take a look at the East London Federation of Suffragettes, and it will raise a number of interesting questions about struggles that are taking place today––in particular, the intersection between class and gender.
2. The aim of this training session will be to consider the circumstances and influences that gave rise to the election of Britain’s first black Labour MP, Shapurji Saklatvala, in 1922. It then allows for consideration of what we can learn from the community organising that took place then can be relevant to communities today.
3. The aim of these training materials to introduce the background to the Bristol Bus Boycott and the questions that it gives rise to in relations to challenging and fighting racism today, but also in building support for issues in local communities.
