BLACK HISTORY MONTH TAKEOVER TIME!!
Yes that’s right, this weekend is all about Black History Leeds!!!
This is the absolute legend that is Joe Williams, founder of The Leeds Black History Walks!
The Leeds Black History Walk was launched in 2009, as part of a Chapeltown community initiative with the Leeds Be-Centenary Transformation Project, to transform how Africans are perceived in history. You will hear about Nesyamun (the Leeds Mummy), the Queen of Sheba, Queen Hatshepsut, the Nubian Pharaohs, the Bangled Lady of York, Emperor Septimius Severus, Olaudah Equiano, Sarah Parker Remond, Prince Alamayu, Pablo Fanque, Wole Soyinka, David Oluwale, Arthur France MBE, RH Robert Nesta Marley, David Hamilton MBE and much more.
Join Joe for this brilliant walk celebrating Black History around beautiful Leeds sites this month. There’s only a few tickets left so make sure you don’t miss out!
The walks in October are on 1st, 7th, and 28th at 11am!
