Secrets of Soho, Black History Walk

Sat, 14 September 2019 10:00 – 12:00


This special walk delves into an amazing depth of African/Caribbean history between Soho Square and

Russell Square: It features:
Ancient African civilisations
Black Female entrepeneurs
The Marcus Garvey connection
Academia and the white curriculum
Black British Civil rights activists
Forgotten African genocide of the 20th century
Black women broadcasters
Equality in the military

What an amazing tour! It completely moved me to rethink the intricate web of social, economic and political relations that characterize British imperial rule and racial politics. Engaging, moving, will keep you asking more questions. The best way to get to know London.
Alai Reyes-Santos, Professor of Ethnic Studies, University of Oregon
