Camden Black History Walks

African and Caribbean history Public history Black History Season

Join Shirley Fortune, a qualified Camden guide leading a walk on Camden’s Black History from a different angle.

Bloomsbury is now the medical and educational centre of London, famous for its charming garden squares and elegant Georgian houses. But there is also an African/Caribbean history here with 'black fingerprints' running through its heart - if you know where to look!

 On this tour we hear about:

  • The railway worker who overturned a whites-only recruitment policy
  • One of the first Black women in higher education
  • The first known Black British editor
  • One of the UK's first civil rights group
  • Pride and Prejudice within the British Museum

Walks are scheduled for Thursday 19 October at 2pm, and for Sunday 5 November at 12pm. Walks last around 2 hours. 

Please meet outside Marks & Spencer, Euston Station.
