“INTERNATIONAL DECADE FOR PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DESCENT 2015 – 2024” CLAPHAM COMMON WALKS

Sunday 8th April 2018 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM @ Clapham Common Park, London SW4 7BE

Due to the interest generated from the recent Marcus Garvey celebrations and the

UN International Decade for people of African Descent we have arranged a special walk around Clapham Common to expose the African resistance and presence in the area.

There are also many homes and establishments literally built from the profits of slavery. This walk features:

* The African Academy, an all black school in the 1800’s

* Black Freedom fighters and the Sierra Leone connection

* African aristocracy in 1800’s London

* Jamaican Maroons and African-Canadians

* How enslaved Africans helped poor English people

* Barclays, Hibbert and other estates built with West Indian money

NB: Exact meet point will be sent after booking
