Exciting interactive history tour on Black British Civil rights and Caribbean history in the Notting Hill area.
There is much more to Notting Hill than Carnival but even that history is often mis-represented. Find out about pioneering African/Caribbean people who literally fought for equality and laid the foundation for modern multi-cultural London.
Why does Portobello Road have that name? Where in London is there evidence of 3500 years of African civilisation? How is Kelso Cochrane connected to Stephen Lawrence?

- West Indian Freedom Fighters in London
- The White Defence League, Oswald Mosley and immigration
- Black self empowerment, economics and community planning
