3SEPT Trafalgar Square Black History Walk

Sep 3 - Saturday at 11:00–13:00

Millions of people walk through Trafalgar Square every day and have no idea of the centuries of African history under their feet and in front of their eyes. In two hours your guide will expose the links between Africa, India and the Caribbean and explain how history was whitewashed and racism institutionalised. In 2007 there was a huge emphasis on the 200th anniversary of the British ‘abolition’ of the human trade in 1807, but African freedom fighters in Haiti defeated the French, Spanish and British armies and had already declared their independence in 1804. This walk features:
African Kings and Queen Victoria Finland geography students Shweta 800×450
African Resistance leaders of the 1860’s
Mandela; Apartheid, Tesco’s and Kit Kat
Australia, Canada, Britain and the planned mis-education of indigenous people and more
