Did you know that the first black female broadcaster at the BBC lived in Camberwell? Or that the first documented interracial marriage took place in Southwark in 1770?
Starting at Herne Hill, we will walk through Brixton and discover the evolution of Black culture through talks and activities about local musicians, artists and political activists.
The walk will end with a visit to the Black Cultural Archives in Windrush Square, Brixton, and the option to stay for lunch in the café.
Meeting point: Herne Hill Station (Market Entrance)
