Hosted by Tony

I’m part of a collective of artists, authors, and filmmakers who collaborate to produce walks, talks and films on the 2,000 years of Black British history. I’ve been featured on BBC, CNN, USA Today, Channel 4, and Teachers TV. In 2018 Conde Nast Traveller magazine listed me in the Best 15 walks in London.

The experience

Walk with us on this experience as listed in Conde Nast Traveller, best 15 walks of London 2018. We've been featured on the BBC, CNN ,Teachers TV and Channel 4.
There is much more to Notting Hill than Carnival but even that history is often mis-represented. Find out about pioneering African/Caribbean people who literally fought for equality and laid the foundation for modern multi-cultural London. Why does Portobello Road have that name? Where in London is there evidence of 3500 years of African civilisation?

On this exciting experience, we'll see many unique sights, including:
• West Indian freedom fighters in London
• Claudia Jones and the origins of carnival
• Where Bob Marley, Diana Ross, Muhammad Ali, and other famous people hung out
• Frank Chrichlow and Darcus Howe: legends of Black British civil rights
Gentrification how, why and where
World War Two, Black servicemen and the Windrush generation
Black British Civil Rights

I would like to say, first, that Tony was phenomenal today for our walking experience through Notting Hill. I really cannot thank him enough. He truly made the history and culture of Notting Hill come alive for my students, they said it was the best walking experience they had so far this term so thank you very much!
