Event description
An illustrated talk on the regeneration of Peckham, its impact on the African-Caribbean community and international comparisons.

About this event

Recent media articles have complained of London being 'sold off to foreigners' It is certainly true that parts of London have drastically changed in appearance in recent years but what impact has there been on the African-Caribbean community ? Black History Walks have hosted a number of educational events on the Windrush generation, civil rights and housing in Brixton, Notting Hill and Hackney but some of our venues no longer exist due to gentrification.

Dr Charmaine Brown will give an illustrated talk via Zoom on the regeneration of Peckham and its impact on the African-Caribbean community. Her talk will cover:

  • What is gentrification ? Positives and negatives
  • Peckham's history: Rural farms, upper class ghetto, urban warzone
  • Black British Civil Rights in Southwark
  • Black Empowerment via Wealth Creation: 'Box hand' and 'Sou Sou'
  • How African-Caribbean people regenerated Peckham before "Regeneration"
  • Depopulation, Re-population and racist shops

There will also be a short presentation from BHW on international comparisons (USA, Brazil, South Africa) and the hidden Black history in London's streets. The Zoom link will be sent 45 minutes before the start, please check your JUNK MAIL.

Other coming events:

  • African Women Resistance Leaders: Political and Spiritual course
  • Bridgerton's real Black History
  • Black History River Cruise
  • The history of the Black Image
  • Black History Bus Tour
  • Black British Ballet in the West End, a brief history
