Red Pepper

A guest blog by Archivist Heather Roberts

red pepperHappy 20th birthday to Red PepperRed Pepper is a popular socialist magazine established in 1995. It followed after the demise of The Socialist, a newspaper printed by the Socialist Movement. Unlike its predecessor however, Red Pepper is without overt nods to one political party and has a strong and loyal following with a content focus on socialism, feminism and the green-left.  At the Labour History Archive & Study Centre we hold the archive of the newspaper. The collection mainly contains issues of Red Pepper and The Socialist; minutes and business plans of Red Pepper and spans the years 1991-2007.  The collection was donated in 2011 by Red Pepper’s editor Hilary Wainwright.
