As the leaves burnish and the Autumnal chill sets in, celebrate the start of Black History Month, with the first ever BLACK HISTORY COME DINE at the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton, hosted by the BCA’s very own chef Elaine Buchanan in association with the Black History Man himself, Robin Walker.
Whilst you indulge in a lavish four-course meal, allow Robin to feed your mind with the richest of enthralling Black History nuggets. This promises to be a unique and memorable evening!
