Wells and celebrating Black History Month in Sutton. During the 1940's H.G Wells used parts of journalistic career to acknowledge and highlight the challenges faced by blacks in Southern Africa and America in regards discrimination. He understood the importance of raising the issues around anti-black laws and sought to speak in favour of fairness and equality in the world that we live in. To celebrate Wells' actions in support of unity and his interest in South Africans, we present a fun and lively afternoon of Freedom Songs and Cultural Arts from Southern Africa.
We open the day with vibrant and interactive workshops of singing, dancing, language and drumming before sharing a powerful performance of Southern African Freedom Songs. Come and take part in our workshops or simply enjoy our performance. Workshop participants can also bring along their own percussion instruments.
1pm - 3pm (Workshops) | 3.15pm - (Performance)
