A Seat at the Table – Black Representation in British Politics

Saturday 29th October

As part of Black History Month in Southwark, The Southwark Black Parents Forum, in association with Parasol Creative Ltd, would like to invite you to ‘A Seat at the Table – Black Representation in British Politics’. This two-day exhibit seeks to highlight the historical and active involvement of African and Caribbean communities in political and civic engagement, pre and post the Windrush era.


With 2022 being the 35th Anniversary of the Labour Party’s 1987 ‘Black Sections’ vote, this exhibition will celebrate the activists and politicians who historically chose (and currently choose) to use the richness of their heritage as a source of inspiration and power in order to bring about balance and positive changes for the communities they serve and represent, despite the cards stacked against them.

This exhibition is a reminder that diverse communities have historically contributed much to politics in the United Kingdom.

Light refreshments and food will be provided.

Educational & Cultural Books, Remembrance Pins and Gifts will be on sale (cash only).

Please book your place via Eventbrite: https://bit.ly/asatt22 and share this event among your networks.
