In this Heritage Talk, historian Dr Paul Jackson reflects on the role of Finsbury Park in the 1930s, with Oswald Mosley's rallies and the Kibbo Kift anti-fascist counterdemonstrations in an era of public unrest.
Paul Jackson is senior lecturer in history at the University of Northampton. He is the author of Colin Jordan and Britain’s Neo-Nazi Movement: Hitler’s Echo (Bloomsbury, 2017), and editor of Bloomsbury’s Modern History of Politics and Violence book series.
