Harrow African Season 2019: Get Up Stand Up – Raising The New African Consciousness Programme

The lack of history, self-knowledge and confidence play a large part in the issue of people, particularly youths, being disengaged with their African identity. Our African History Season programme uses audio-visuals and musical performances, motivational speech, film, play, and a pan-Africanism presentation to deal with the issues in an engaging manner by Brother Andrew ‘The Investigator’ Muhammad, Kimba, Kwaku and Nana Asante for a youth and inter-generational audience.

All events @ Members Lounge, Harrow Civic Centre, except *4, which is at : Harrow Mencap, 1st Floor, 3 Jardine House, Harrovian Business Village, Bessborough Rd, Harrow HA1 3EX.
