African History And Representation Across London

Sunday May 31 2020, 6-9pm (UK, GMT +1)

African Representations

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

Marking London History Day 2020 and Spirit Of African Jubilee Year 1987-88

African history and representations across London incredibly span over two millennia! In 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, to keep the discussion flowing.

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.

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