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.
