With Britain deeply divided over immigration, a motley crew of mavericks band together with The Clash and other top punk bands of the day to create Britain's biggest-ever civil rights movement, Rock Against Racism (RAR).
Britain, late-1970s. Punk is exploding. The country is divided over immigration. The National Front, a far-right political party, is gaining strength as politicians like Enoch Powell push a xenophobic agenda. Outraged by a racist speech from Eric Clapton, photographer Red Saunders teams up with like-minded creatives to create Rock Against Racism, Britain's biggest-ever civil rights movement. Momentum spreads virally across the UK and Europe, becoming a grassroots youth movement, while The Clash, Steel Pulse, and others jump on board. White Riot is a moment in time when a generation challenged the status quo, and music changed the world.
