African history and representations across London incredibly spans over two millennia!
In this event, History consultant Kwaku will show excerpts and images from his ‘African History Through Representation In The Capital’ documentary.
The African Jubilee Year Declaration, called for the promotion of positive imagery, achievements and contributions of Africans at home and abroad, including naming buildings, parks, monuments and streets after notable Africans.
It’s a participatory forum, where attendees will contribute to the discussions by asking questions, and mentioning London’s African-related artefacts and representations that they know.
