Black Cultural Archives' current exhibition Black Sound celebrates Black British music. Join us for an extended walking tour that traces the web of narrow streets in the central London neighbourhood of Soho. Once known as London's 'negro quarter', we will explore the nightclubs, bars and restaurants
Tracing the stories of the Caribbean pioneers who brought jazz to London during the First World War, the cafe that was a home to icons of the Pan African movement, the clubs where future statesmen gained their training in political organising and the man responsible for bringing Jamaicans to Brixton.
We will explore the Black club owners, musicians, dancers, politicians and poets, and how nightclubbing in Soho changed history. This walking tour will last approximately two hours.
Tickets are £10, £7 concessions (students, OAPs)
This tour will also take place on Saturday 19 August, 2.00pm-4.00pm.
