Featuring contributions by writer and broadcaster Robert Elms, singer-songwriter Billy Bragg, cultural historian Andy Croft, poet Jackie Kay, a special performance of his one-man play 'Call Mr Robeson' by Tayo Aluko, a song commissioned for the anniversary written and performed by Grace Petrie, plus many others.
