Description

Edinburgh and Black History

The presence of African, Asian and mixed race people in Edinburgh is not new. As far back as the 16th Century there is evidence of African people working and enjoying high status in the Royal Court. The Indian Association of Edinburgh was founded in 1883 and still exists today. Come along and hear Lisa Williams, director of the Edinburgh Caribbean Association, tell us the little-known stories of the people and of Edinburgh’s deep connections with Africa, Asia and the Caribbean from Tudor times to the present day.
