Islington Black History Month 2013

Things to do

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

To mark Black History Month this October, Islington are hosting a series of events surrounding the theme of 'leadership and those who have triumphed in the fight for equal rights'. There will be youth workshops for ages 15-21 based around critical thinking (Oct 21) – how to recognise conditioning in popular culture – and the power of lyrical expression (Oct 23). Audiences can take part in quizzes and interactive workshops to find different routes to success (Oct 25). There will also be a series of films on various dates, incuding a screening of 'Sus', featuring a Q&A session with locally-based actor Clint Dyer (Oct 4), 'Guerilla Grannies', which includes food and music (Oct 10), 'Once Upon a Time When We Were Coloured' (Oct 15) and more.

All of the events are free, except the 'Sus' screening/Q&A, which is £5. For further information, visit
