Trafalgar Square Black History Walk

Sunday 20th March

90 minute guided history walk on the hundreds of years of African/Caribbean history in the area around Trafalgar Square

 

Millions of people walk through Trafalgar Square every day and have no idea of the centuries of African history under their feet and in front of their eyes. Your guide will expose the links between Africa, India and the Caribbean and explain how history was whitewashed and racism institutionalised. In 2007 there was a huge emphasis on the 200th anniversary of the British ‘abolition’ of the human trade in 1807, but African freedom fighters in Haiti defeated the French, Spanish and British armies and had already declared their independence in 1804.

This walk features:

  • African Kings and Queen Victoria
  • African Resistance leaders of the 1860’s
  • Mandela; Apartheid, Tesco’s and Kit Kat
  • Australia, Canada, Britain and the planned mis-education of indigenous people
  • The Will Smith of 1800’s Europe. Black art of the 1800s
  • The African Princess
  • Black self empowerment and corruption of the airwaves

Media propaganda of the 1800’s and much, much more !
