Date 29/03/18
Price Free

In recognition of International Women's Month, celebrate the achievements of those Black women who fought against British racism over the last 300 years.

The bias in schools gives the impression that racism and civil rights was an American issue, totally ignoring the struggles Black British people endured.

Expect to hear about Dame Jocelyn Barrow, Florence Mills, Mavis Best, Adelaide Hall, Sybil Phoenix, Connie Mark, Linda Bellos, Will Brown and many others, with issues covering everything from virginity testing at Heathrow, deaths in custody, Saturday schools, Educationally Sub Normal classes, theatre, the Royal Navy, politics and much more.

Black History Walks offers guided Walking Tours of London to include its African history which goes back 3500 years. Walks take place in St Pauls/Bank, Docklands, Soho, Trafalgar Square, Elephant & Castle and Notting Hill.
