We’re nearing the end of Black History Month, here we’re sharing three events that extend beyond October. Everyone can continue celebrating and learning about Black History year-round.
The walk will focus on African/Caribbean history and will take place between Soho Square and Russel Square. The event will cover a wide breadth of themes from Ancient African civilisations to Black women broadcasters.
Tickets are £10 and are available through this link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/camden-black-history-walk-7-november-tickets-123798399345
With a specific focus on African and Caribbean communities in London, the Camden History Walk couldn’t be more crucial to a better understanding of London’s History and its culture.
The free event, organised by Southbank Centre, celebrates the achievements of Black Women who have, historically, gone unrecognised.
The first exhibition of its kind, Phenomenal Women: Portraits of UK Black Female Professors highlights the intersectionality of race and gender. It showcases the achievements of Black female scholars.
The outdoor exhibition on Queen’s Walk is based on research carried out by academic Dr Nicola Rollock, who commissioned photographer Bill Knight to take photos.
The event is on for another week until 8th November. Find out more here: https://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whats-on/art-exhibitions/phenomenal-women
Written in response to their play Death of England, Michael Balogun plays Delroy in this new standalone work by Clint Dyer and Roy Williams. The play explores a Black working class man searching for truth and confronting his relationship with Great Britain.
It is on until November 28th so there is still plenty of time to catch it. Tickets start at £46 – the show is very popular so we suggest you book on quickly!
