Join this evening walking tour along the Southbank and riverside to learn more about the African/Caribbean history of the Thames and its heritage landmarks. The Founder of Black History Walks, Tony Warner, will reveal how the river’s heritage is connected to ancient Africa, Black heroes of World War II, British Civil Rights, music, suffragettes, movies and gentrification. Covering Waterloo and Westminster bridges, the tour will also provide an opportunity to engage with the Illuminated River artwork.
This event is run in collaboration with Black History Walks. They have been delivering some of the best walking tours in London for over 14 years and have more than 20 years’ experience delivering film exhibitions and talks. Their book, Black History Walks in London Volume 1, published by Jacaranda, is on sale now.
