I’m part of a collective of artists, authors, and filmmakers who collaborate to produce walks, talks and films on the 2,000 years of Black British history. I’ve been featured on BBC, CNN, USA Today, Channel 4, and Teachers TV. In 2018 Conde Nast Traveller magazine listed me in the Best 15 walks in London.

When I talk about my trip, I talk about the Black history tour before I lead into other sights that I have seen. Thanks for the history and knowledge that was gained!
