Due to the interest generated from the Black History River cruise/bus tour and the UN International Decade of 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 and more
  • send

Exact meet point will be sent after booking

  • 50 years since MLK was assassinated
  • 60 Years since the Notting Racist Riots
