ERA is an online magazine and platform making radical history accessible for all.
History is broadly taught as the selected victories of an elite few. But decolonial history is also the experiences of our parents and grandparents. It’s the development of the neighbourhoods we grew up in and the way they change over time. It’s the relationships between our community and those of others, and the bases on which we identify ourselves. There are also the stories of the people who challenged the status quo and made the powerful uncomfortable, and the movements that inspire the people making the powerful uncomfortable today. They often – and conveniently – get forgotten.
These are two examples of radical history – a radical, grassroots imagining of historical practice, and the history of radicalism.
