Luton Black Men Community Group Presents

FADE – Film And Discussion Event

Sunday 1st May 3pm to 5pm

‘Black Image’ presentation by Black History Walks

(for the whole African Heritage family, men, women, boys and girls)

Luton Irish Forum, 102 Hitchin Road, Luton LU2 0ES

(Entrance at car park off roundabout at Brunswick Street)

 

A very revealing presentation and film which shows how the image of African people has been deliberately altered by Europeans to show negativity. In the 15th century African people were portrayed in European art as noble, sophisticated and intelligent. With the rise of Empire these images were thrown out and replaced with demeaning stereotypes which still inform public opinion via children’s books and Hollywood movies. This will be an interactive session with lots of audience participation

Tony Warner is the Director of Black History Walks, www.blackhistorywalks.co.uk that offer guided Walking Tours of London which include its 2000 years of African history. The walks take place in St Pauls/Bank, Elephant and Castle, Soho, Trafalgar Square and Notting Hill and last about two hours. They also offer Films and Talks on a variety of African-centred topics all year long .The talks are interactive, multi-media presentations designed to suit all audiences and include the Black History of Captain America, Medical Apartheid and Tracing my African Roots to Jamaica via the English Aristocracy.
