Recent media articles have complained of London being ‘sold off to foreigners’ It is certainly true that parts of London have drastically changed in appearance in recent years but what impact has there been on the African-Caribbean community ?
Black History Walks have hosted a number of educational events on the Windrush generation, civil rights and housing in Brixton/Notting Hill but some of our venues no longer exist due to gentrification. Senior Lecturer Charmaine Brown will give an illustrated talk on the regeneration of Peckham and its impact on the African-Caribbean commmunity. Her talk will cover:
What is gentrification ? Positives and negatives
Peckham’s history: Rural farms, upper class ghetto, urban warzone
Black British Civil Rights in Southwark
Black Empowerment via Wealth Creation: ‘Box hand’ and ‘Sou Sou’
How African-Caribbean people regenerated Peckham before “Regeneration”
Depopulation, Repopulation and racist shops
There will also be a short presentation from BHW on international comparisons (Brooklyn, Brazil, South Africa) and the hidden Black history in London’s streets.
