In freeing their music from the standard assumptions of show business, the boppers had taken an enormous risk—and their audience, at least as white as it was black, understood that and supported the implicit goal of liberation. At this time early in the decade, the electric blues of Chicago had an almost exclusively black audience, but the music stood for a black autonomy that would be instantly grasped by the white acolytes who would locate it a few years later. The blues were implicit in much of postwar country music, so it was no great stretch for country to fuse with R & B to form rockabilly. And folk music formally presented a progressive message of peaceful racial coexistence that was merely a verbal manifestation of the vision articulated by those fusing racial streams that in the new decade would give the world rock ’n’ roll. The great migration to the North through World War II had given black people at least some clout as they began to vote Democratic. Tensions escalated in August 1955 after the body of fourteen-year-old Emmett Till, a black boy from Chicago visiting relatives in Money, Mississippi, was pulled from the Tallahatchie River, one eye gouged out and a seventy-pound.

The flux capacitor sputtered into life and thousands of punters revved to 88mph, partying like it was 1955 as 'Interactive' firm Secret Cinema recreated the entire California town of HIll Valley to show the sci-fi classic.

Organisers announced the first screening would finally go ahead last night, and the run has now been extended to the end of this month.
