The Black History of Prince
Mon 24 October 2016, 18:30 – 21:00 BST
A Musical Genius
Prince was a musical genius who died way too soon. We celebrate and remember his legacy via this interactive presentation and review of his musical career using video clips, sound bites, interviews and audience participation. Although it is not well known, Prince was a huge Black History fan with an extensive library. He also used his art to promote both human rights and civil rights and was involved in the Black Lives Matter campaign.
We will showcase his activism, consciousness, politics and philanthropy and other information neglected by mainstream media. We will also cover:
Is there a war against 'conscious' Black artists
Worth more dead than alive? Who gets the money?
Artists he influenced or mentored
Conspiracy theories real or imagined ?
This event is part of the Waltham Forest Black History Month programme curated by Black History Walks
