British Black History Blog

Learn all about British Black history in our blog posts. We shine a light on historical and current events to educate and inspire.

The Black History Walks team is a collective of professionals from a range of backgrounds and sectors. We are teachers, IT professionals, artists, authors, athletes and film-makers. Our regular blogs cover diverse topics relevant to Black history, with a specific focus on London.

The BHW team is dedicated to uncovering the 3,500 years of Black history in London. Our blogs are designed to educate, inspire and spark debate. We also discuss upcoming Black History Walks events, from film screenings and Q&As to talks by leading academics and experts

Topics covered include Black film, current politics and society, upcoming cultural events and talks, and British Black history and music.

For our unique and pioneering GCSE exam text book for schools produced in collaboration with Pearson Edexcel click HERE. The book features Black British Civil Rights activism in Notting Hill and is based on our walk in that area.

And while you’re here, why not take a look around the rest of the site? We offer some of the best walking tours in London, along with an extensive programme of bus tours, river cruises, film exhibitions and educational talks.
