BHM Presentation: The Amazing History of Black People in London before 1948 - Sun 29 October 2017 | Blacknet UK


#London Borough of Haringey Black History Month Programme

Presentation: The Amazing #History of #BlackPeople in London before 1948

This fascinating presentation by #BlackHistoryStudies focuses on the hidden history of London and the contributions made by people of #African and #Caribbean descent to London in the areas of #Literature  #Politics #Music and #Health & #Welfare before 1948. Most people believe that Black people only came here in 1948. Black people have lived in Britain since Roman times. Moors were a common sight in Elizabethan England. There were great Black personalities in 18th and 19th century Britain. This presentation tells their story.

We will cover key questions such: Were Black people here in Roman times? What roles did Black people have in 17th century Britain? Who were the great Black personalities of the 18th and 19th centuries? What was that #Blacknewspaper that operated out of Fleet Street in 1920? This presentation will highlight the invaluable input people of African and Caribbean descent have provided to London, from the 17th century to 1948.
