This year, Southall Black Sisters celebrates 40 years of survival and struggle. To mark our 40th anniversary we’ve been holding a series of events. The next event will be two walking tours to take place on 22 and 29 of June from 11:00am until 2:00pm.
Since our inception we have challenged and resisted gender, racial and other forms of inequality against a backdrop of profound political, economic and social change. In 1979 our founding members joined community anti-racist protesters in Southall against the presence of the National Front and went on to form Southall Black Sisters.
Join us as we walk in the footsteps of campaigning women. Start at Southall Town Hall where it all exploded, take a walk through the heart of Southall stopping outside landmarks where SBS history was made, end up at the SBS office to look at posters and photos of the key moments. At the end of both tours we’ll offer a delicious Indian meal in our office, to all participants.
