With the National Front on the rise and musicians like Eric Clapton supporting racist views from politicians, Rock Against Racism was formed by a handful of like-minded individuals in London, 1976. Seeking to reclaim punk bands who had gathered followings from racist groups, Rock Against Racism quickly became a UK-wide movement. Branches were set up by supporters all across the country, with its members united by its central tenet: love music, hate racism. Culminating in a momentous concert at Victoria Park in 1978, this documentary charts the historical movement, adeptly using archive footage to tell the story. ‘White Riot’ is a timely examination of the history of racism in the UK, as well as providing a demonstration of the positive impact music can have.
