This walk links the Imperial War Museum with the Cumin Museum of Ancient Egypt. It illustrates more than 200 years of Black history with tales of the Will Smith of 1800’s London, the strategic planning of the Windrush generation, African soldiers and their centuries of service to Britain, India and Africa’s enormous role in WW2.
