Camden Black History Walks

Celebrating Black History Month in Camden Town

Shirley Fortune, a qualified Camden guide, is leading a walk on Camden’s Black History from a different angle.

Discover the history and heritage by joining Shirley on her tour of Camden. Bloomsbury is now the medical and educational centre of London, famous for its charming garden squares and elegant Georgian houses, however there is also an African/Caribbean history here with ‘black fingerprints’ running through its heart – if you know where to look!

 On this tour we hear about:

  • The railway worker who overturned a whites-only recruitment policy
  • One of the first Black women in higher education
  • The first known Black British editor
  • One of the UK’s first civil rights group
  • Pride and Prejudice within the British Museum

Walks are scheduled for Thursday 19 October at 2pm, and for Sunday 5 November at 12pm. Walks last around 2 hours, and meet outside Marks & Spencer, Euston Station.
