3.00pm - 'Jumpstart Your Financial Future' by Daryl Harper, Financial Educator

Money and Finance is a subject that many people are either never taught in school, they don't understand or, more often than not, they shy away from. This lack of knowledge and financial illiteracy has left many people struggling to get out of the rat race- the monotony of just surviving and living from pay cheque to pay cheque.

This is your opportunity to learn some simple steps that can impact and change your life dramatically. It's time to learn how to win the money game, protect your family, get your money to work as hard for you as you work for it, accelerate your mortgage, pay consumer debts off faster, save, make and get better value for your money and position yourself for a comfortable retirement.

Daryl Harper is a dynamic, energetic, infectious speaker, who always delivers from the heart and aims to provoke you into taking positive actions in the right direction. While teaching at a college, Daryl's passion for mentoring, equipping and coaching grew. He noticed that there was nowhere in the educational system that empowered people in the area of finance and there was a MASSIVE gap. An interest in financial education, personal development and leadership was birthed and he later found mentors and coaches who were very successful in the financial service arena. He went on to get trained and qualified to deliver financial education and has been working in the field since 2008.


4.30pm - NORTH LONDON PREMIERE of 'TRESS: Artists and Angels, Masters of Natural Hair (2015)'

This is a film everyone should see. Walk away encouraged by the stories from people whose lives have been changed through their hair. Tress affirms our walk with natural beauty with pageantry and music inspiring a new dialog about cultural influences and embracing one’s own inner and outer beauty.




6.00pm - BHS PREMIERE of ‘Generation Revolution (2016)' by Usayd Younis, Cassie Quarless



Generation Revolution brings to screen the powerful story of a new generation of Black and Brown activists who are changing the social and political landscape in the capital and beyond. This feature-length documentary film follows an exciting new breed of organisations as well as the young Londoners that are part of them.

The London Black Revolutionaries, or ‘Black Revs', have a predilection for dramatic, raucous, direct action. R Movement challenge the idea of the ‘Staid and Serious' political activist and The Black Dissidents are a new organisation intent on furthering the fight against oppression along the lines of race, class and gender.

The film vividly chronicles the evolution of our characters as they experience personal and political awakenings, breakthroughs and, at times, disillusionment. Generation Revolution offers a unique and original glimpse into the rewarding but difficult path that must be trodden in the struggle for personal, social and political liberation.
8.00pm - BHS PREMIERE of ‘I Am Not Your Negro (2017)' by James Baldwin, Raoul Peck 


In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House, which was to be a revolutionary, personal account of three assassinated leaders who were also his close friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of his manuscript.

Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck (Sometimes in April, Lumumba) envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. Using only Baldwin’s words, either spoken by the man himself or read by Samuel L. Jackson, and a flood of rich archival material, Peck has crafted a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America.

I Am Not Your Negro is a poetic, eloquent and thought-provoking journey into Black History that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter; it is a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for. Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary Feature.


Any profits from the Black Market and Film Festival will go towards funding future events as we are SELF FUNDED and strive to be self-sufficient.

Our economic empowerment and liberation is OUR RESPONSIBILITY.
