Example text

The Arts Lab was no less experimental than the Ambiance. It ran for 2 years from 1967 to 1969. The Arts Lab was the centre of many hippy happenings and was regularly featured in magazines such as Oz, IT, SUCK and Rolling Stone. The association of these two centres of the white counterculture is an indication of Michael X’s influence rather than Howe’s. Importantly, Howe was out of the country during its production, and although the reading list and the programme reflect Howe’s input, much of the rest of the magazine reflects the work of others.

Fleeting though they were, the Black Eagles played a significant part in the development of Black Power in Britain. Specifically, the Eagles were the first Black Power group to turn their back on Michael X. Moreover, they set out a legal strategy for dealing with prosecution that would later be employed in the Mangrove trial. The Eagles were launched during a turbulent period in the history of Black Power in Britain. Egbuna had recently been arrested. Denied bail, he languished for 6 months in Brixton Prison.

All three had flanked Carmichael during his appearance at the Roundhouse. The men in question were Michael X, Obi Egbuna and Roy Sawh. While Howe was never allied with any of these figures, they form the context for the first phase of the development of Black Power. From 1965 to 1967, Michael X was the face of black radicalism in Britain. Christened Michael de Freitas, and later known as Michael Abdul Malik, Michael X described himself as the ‘most famous black man’ in the Britain. He had risen to prominence following Malcolm X’s visit to Britain in 1965.
