Alex Richardson Host: Alex is a History teacher at Warlingham School, with an MRes in History from Goldsmiths University. His specialist areas are the German Revolution of 1918, the Cold War, and the history of the early Soviet Union.

Malcolm X was as an African American minister and human rights activist. 

In this class, students will examine his life and his role in the struggle for Civil Rights. Alex will also discuss the tactic of physical resistance as a strategy in the anti-racist struggle.

This class will help students who haven't yet covered the topic in school to get ahead, as well as acting as a good revision resource for those students who have covered the topic in school but want to excel in their exams or teacher assessments with further examples and learning consolidation.
