Enoch Powell, Empires, Immigrants and Education
Tomlinson, Sally
Race, Ethnicity and Education, v21 n1 p1-14 2018
2018 marks the 50th anniversary of Enoch Powell's infamous "Rivers of Blood" speech, an intervention that is still viewed as one of the most incendiary statements of the perceived decay and violence likely to follow legislation intended to assure minoritised British citizens of equal rights regardless of their ethnic origin. In this essay, Sally Tomlinson (one of Britain's foremost multicultural theorists) reflects on Powell's legacy and the contemporary scene where in the US, UK and across Europe, White resentment and fear is increasingly shaping "mainstream" debates about nationhood, migration and education.
