NNO MEETUP: Black History Walks x NNO History Walk - Notting Hill

In 140 minutes Black History Walks will take us through hundreds of years of the African presence and contribution to London’s way of life.

There is much more to Notting Hill than Carnival but even that history is often mis-represented. Find out about pioneering African/Caribbean people who literally fought for equality and laid the foundation for modern multi-cultural London. Why does Portobello Road have that name? Where in London is there evidence of 3500 years of African civilisation? How is Kelso Cochrane connected to Stephen Lawrence?

This walk features:

- West Indian Freedom Fighters in London

- The White Defence League, Oswald Mosley and immigration

- Black self empowerment, economics and community planning

- Claudia Jones and the origins of Carnival

- Bob Marley, Diana Ross, Muhammad Ali, Marvin Gaye, Band Aid, Rhianna and where they hung out

- Shebeens and the Black Panthers

- World War Two, Windrush, Segregation and Gentrification

- Frank Chrichlow, Darcus Howe legends of Black British Civil Rights

- Race, Class, Gender, Literature, Science and much, much more!

NNO MEETUP: Exhibition - Making Jamaica: Photography from the 1890s

Exhibition Opening

• Experience an archive of photographs from 19th century Jamaica
• More than 70 historic images on display
• Making Jamaica also includes new work by contemporary artist Ingrid Pollard
This exhibition uncovers the history of how the image of modern Jamaica as a tourist destination - and tropical commodity - was created through photography.


From the 1890s onwards, domestic and international firms photographed the people, architecture and landscape of Jamaica. Many of these original Victorian prints and lantern slides have never been shown in the UK.
The photographs in Making Jamaica have been selected from Patrick Montgomery’s Caribbean Photo Archive. Five large hand-tinted photographs by Ingrid Pollard will respond to the archive, a commission marking the 30th anniversary of her landmark project Pastoral Interludes (1987).

ADMISSION FREE.

NNO MEETUP: New Year Meet + Greet & BHW Blacks Britannica + Discussion

Black History Walks African Odysseys - Blacks Britannica + discussion with Colin Prescod, Chair of the Institute of Race Relations, Kunle Olulode, Director of Voice4Change and other guests TBA

This groundbreaking film from 1978 loses none of its urgency and insight today.

BLACKS BRITANNICA (1978) is a relentless and engrossing indictment of racism toward black immigrants to England, told from an obvious Marxist perspective. The film argues that discrimination in England is based on economics and fueled by opportunists across the entire spectrum of British politics. Told through the eyes and words of a cross-section of blacks, David Koff's film uses interviews, stock footage, and scenes of street life and violence to show how blacks in England are trapped at the bottom of an economic and political system which shows little compassion or concern about their fate. Rapid editing, overlapping dialogue and cinema verité all build to an emotional and violent climax, whose conclusion is underscored by a reggae band's call for revolution. As Koff puts it, the film "reflects the increasingly militant response within the black community to the continuing attacks upon it, both by the fascist elements on the street and by the state itself." An official of the British Information Service in Washington called the film "dangerous" and asked for equal time. New York Times critic John O'Connor said the film not only documents the growing militancy, "but, quite clearly, the structure and tone endorse it."
