Trailer for a new (short) documentary on race and the big society in the UK

Runnymede: Intelligence for a multi-ethnic Britain

Number Games: Does race have a place in the Big Society?
We know that cuts to public sector services and jobs will impact particularly heavily on ethnic minority people. So, how can the Big Society be a racially just one?

Set in London and Chicago, Number Games sets out to answer this question by looking at the model for social activism in the US.

The 25-minute documentary follows Runnymede director Dr Rob Berkeley as he travels to Chicago for the largest race equality event in the world. Rob speaks to community organisers, exploring what we can learn from their particular brand of activism and how it has been used to fight for racial justice.

The film's first screening will mark 30 years since the 1981 Brixton Riot: a watershed moment in the history of race relations in the UK. You will be able to watch Number Games in full for free from Tuesday 12 April 2011 on the Runnymede website
