Legendary African-Americans in London 1860s-1960s

February 21, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CST

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 African-British people who had similar struggles. These visits stretched from before the US Civil War (1865) to the Black Power movements of the 1970s and even now.

In this one hour session, plus Q&A, we will take you through the visits, locations and activities of major and less well-known Black American freedom fighters including:

  • Magicians
  • Doctors
  • Comedians
  • Authors
  • Black Power/Civil Rights Activists
  • Musicians
  • Runaways

This is an online event. The Zoom link will be sent one hour before the event starts. Please check your JUNK MAIL.
