Event Description

Enjoy a 90-minute virtual walking tour of London, highlighting 6 sites where African American activists made an important impact on the British landscape. You will journey “through the streets of London – and possibly further afield – to learn how African Americans activists travelled to the British Isles during the c19th, to educate audiences about the brutalities of slavery, to write and publish their narratives, raise money to legally purchase themselves or family members, or to settle and work here. In their radical and politicised journeys of freedom, they travelled thousands of miles to give lectures in large cities like London and Edinburgh, to small villages like Bakewell, Keswick and Pembroke.”
