Online talk ‘A socialist witness for peace: Fenner Brockway’s conscientious objection during the First World War’

On 12th May, Hazel Kent will speak about Fenner Brockway at a talk hosted by the Working Class Movement Library.

The Quaker concept of witness can be defined as action inspired by faith. Fenner Brockway, although not a Quaker, witnessed for peace in a variety of ways during WW1: through his journalism, his political activity, work for the No-Conscription Fellowship, and being imprisoned for 28 months as a conscientious objector. This talk will explore these varied experiences along with the socialist and spiritual convictions which underpinned them.

Hazel Kent is an Associate Tutor in History at Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln.

Date: 12th May 2021 Time: 14:00 to 15:00

This talk will be live-streamed, with login details appearing on this Web page on the day of the talk.
