Black History of Comedy @BFI Southbank

Saturday 4th September 6.15pm

Comedians often use history in their material. In this interactive session we’ll piece together a visual tapestry of the best historical comedy from popular and lesser-known comics from the 1960s to now. We’ll place their amusing observations on a historical timeline of international struggle for Black equality, and show how comedy can be educational – be prepared to laugh your head off and learn about world history at the same time! Presented by Tony Warner, Black History Walks, Chair of African Odysseys’ steering committee
