Event description

Description

A 2hr walking tour through some of Islington’s little-know landmarks and places of significance. Your professional guide Avril Nanton will reveal the abundance of black history and the amazing things that have happened in the borough. Find out about the first black cultural arts centre, the history of the ANC, Islington’s Egyptian links and the legacies of black revolutionary politicians and activists, such as Claudia Jones and Angela Davis and their encounters in the borough.


This is a gentle walk for all abilities. The event is free but a suggested donation of £3 is encouraged.

We'll meet outside Angel tube station (or inside if it is raining) and finish at Sadlers Wells theatre.
