Black History Walks have an extensive programme of online and in-person talks on a variety of topics related to Black History – click here to see what’s happening this month. We organise Black history and cultural events in London for individuals and groups. We have delivered our talks in museums, schools, universities, colleges, community settings and government organisations.
We are continually developing our community network of speakers and adding new events and talks, in addition to our walking tours of London. We’re proud to be a collective of academics and professionals. Our talks are delivered by athletes, teachers, artists, film-makers and other professionals.
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.
Our Black history talks and presentations are suitable for a wide range of audiences. Many talks cover National Curriculum topics such as World War I and II, Black British Civil Rights, and Science and Invention, making them ideal for teachers seeking to inspire and educate their students about Black History.
Our series of adult education talks include topics such as Fibroids, Black Women Leaders and The Black Image. We also offer a large selection of popular culture presentations, including The Black History of Comedy, How Jamaicans Ended Slavery and African Superheroes Day.
There are over 40 interactive, short to long, multimedia presentations in our back catalogue, or please get in touch to discuss bespoke history talks.
In addition to our presentations and talks, we host the monthly Queen Nzingha lectures. These lectures are presented by African Caribbean female academics and experts in their field. Previous topics include, “The Impact of Hip Hop on White Masculinities”, “White Saviours” and “Black Help(less)”. Periodically we also run 6 and 12 week courses on James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, Andrea Levy, Black Film history and African Women Resistance Leaders.
