Event Description

Illustrated talk on some of the most famous, and least known, African Americans who strolled London's streets and fought for equality. Many African Americans came to Britain in the mid-1800s to escape US white supremacy. Once here they gave speeches, networked, raised funds, collaborated, shared strategies with and inspired the local black community who had similar struggles.
