Due to interest generated from recent events and the Decade of People of African Descent we explore the hidden Black history in Clapham

Due to recent protests and the United Nations International Decade of People of African Descent, we repeat our special walk around Clapham Common to expose the African resistance, presence and history in the area. There are also many homes and establishments literally built from the profits of slavery. This walk features:

  • The African Academy, an all black school in the 1800’s
  • Black Freedom fighters and the Sierra Leone connection
  • African aristocracy in 1800’s London
  • Jamaican Maroons and African-Canadians
  • How enslaved Africans helped poor English people
  • Barclays, Hibbert and other estates built with West Indian money and more

Exact meet point will be sent after booking .
