Black African communities have had a seismic impact across British culture, sports, politics, and more. Immigration from countries like Nigeria, Ghana and Zimbabwe has created many vibrant communities across Britain, especially in London. Across food, faith, and culture, the nation’s capital has become a melting pot of ideas of what it is to be Black, African, and British.
At the RSA, writer, editor and restaurant critic Jimi Famurewa shares stories of time spent immersed in the culture, tradition, food and politics of Black African London and explores what this can teach us about the nature of modern London, modern Britain, and modern diaspora life.
