New book exploring London’s black history out now
A new book exploring the impact black people have made in the capital throughout the centuries is out now.
It’s also the UK’s first travel guide to black history in London.
‘Black London’ is written by tour guide Avril and Jody, a librarian.
Jody once attended one of Avril’s tours and couldn’t believe the gaps in all our knowledge abut the important contribution made by those from the black community which have changed our culture and gone unrecognised.
Black London was released on Windrush day last Tuesday and Avril is still out and about doing her tour guiding so look her up.
James spoke with the two with them.
