African History And Representation Across London

Monday May 2021, 6-9pm (UK)

African Representations

A fun, interactive, family-friendly journey of discovery of African history and representations across London!

This event brings a British African history perspective to the marking of London History Day 2021.

‘African History And Representation Across London’ is a video screening and discussion forum to keep the discussion flowing and moving forward one of the tenets of the African Jubilee Year Declaration, which called for the promotion of positive imagery, achievements and contributions of Africans at home and abroad, including naming buildings, parks, monuments and streets after notable Africans.

History consultant Kwaku will show excerpts and images from his ‘London African History Through Representation In The Capital’ documentary, a video that incredibly spans over two millennia!

It’s a participatory forum, where attendees of this online event are expected to contribute to the discussions by not only asking questions, but also by mentioning any of London’s African-related artefacts and representations that they know that are in public spaces.

There will be a special Spirit Of African Jubilee Year 1987-88 clap for any attendee whose contribution is new to Kwaku!

Produced by BTWSC/African Histories Revisited – marking London History Day 2021 and Spirit Of African Jubilee Year 1987-88.
