BTWSC/African Histories Revisited

We mark London History Day with the premiere screening of the 'London African History Through Representation In The Capital' documentary. See how African history is represented in the capital's plaques, buildings, busts, street names and more!


London African History Through Representations In The Capital
5.30pm - 7.30pm
£5.98 – £11.37 (refundable upon attendance) - Book online 

This family-friendly event is part of our African Jubilee Year 1987-88 @ 30 programming. 

Although part of the African Jubilee Year Declaration urged the promotion of positive imagery, achievements and contributions of Africans at home and abroad, including naming buildings, parks, monuments and streets after notable Africans, this process began before the Declaration. For example, Dalston Library was renamed CLR James Library in 1985, and Selous Street in Camden, was renamed Mandela Street in 1983. The process however continues - Bernie Grant Arts Centre was named after the late Tottenham MP in 2007.

How many of these African representations across London are you aware of? If you know of any that the moderator doesn't know, you could win a prize!

All details, including contacting organiser and refund policy, can be found at the ticketing booking site.
