Event description

Description

Part of Waltham Forest Black History Month curated by Black History Walks

Black-British Civil Rights Heroes, 1596-2006.

The bias in schools gives the impression that racism and civil rights was an American issue and totally ignores the struggles Black British people endured. This presentation will provide the names and achievements of those Black people born or resident here that fought against British racism over the last 400 years.

Includes: Thomas Peters, Mary Prince, Ottobah Cuguano, Baron Baker,  Olaudah Equiano, Phyllis Wheatley, Dame Jocelyn Barrow, Mavis Best. Also covers issues such as  virginity testing at Heathrow, deaths in custody, Saturday schools, ESN classes,  and much more
