The experience

Hi, I'm Tony. I am part of a collective of athletes, IT professionals, teachers, artists, authors and film-makers who collaborate to produce walks, talks and films on the 2000 years of Black British history. We've even been featured on the BBC, CNN 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?

Join me on this exciting experience, where 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

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!
