'The Amazing History of Black People in London before 1948'

 

                                Sancho

 

 

This fascinating presentation by Black History Studies focuses on the hidden history of London and the contributions made by people of African and Caribbean descent to London in the areas of Literature, Politics, Music and Health & Welfare before 1948. Most people believe that Black people only came here in 1948. Black people have lived in Britain since Roman times. Moors were a common sight in Elizabethan England. There were great Black personalities in 18th and 19th century Britain. This presentation tells their story.

 

We will cover key questions such: Were Black people here in Roman times? What roles did Black people have in 17th century Britain? Who were the great Black personalities of the 18th and 19thcenturies? What was that Black newspaper that operated out of Fleet Street in 1920? This presentation will highlight the invaluable input people of African and Caribbean descent have provided to London, from the 17th century to 1948.

Heroines of the African Holocaust:
African Women in War

 

Saturday 4th March 2017

 

 


The Abolition of the Slave Trade Act 1807 was an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, which was passed on 25 March 1807. March 2017 is the 210th anniversary of this event. After the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act 1807, holding previously enslaved people was still legal and no enslaved people were freed by the Act - so the struggle continued. London played a central role in Britain's involvement in the transatlantic trade in enslaved Africans. Because London was Britain's major port, ships owned by London merchants dominated the trade during the 17th and early 18th centuries. As we prepare to celebrate Women's History Month and International Women's Day, we herald the history making achievements of African women around the world.


This informative and inspirational presentation tells the story of the hidden contribution of African women to the abolition struggles and resistance movements to end the African Holocaust (Slavery). African women were at the forefront of the drive for Black emancipation, so why do we only know about Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth? It is important to recognise that the study of Black Women's History makes for a much more inclusive, richer, fuller and more importantly, truthful account of World History. In this presentation, we will cover the lesser known heroines of this period.


Bring your children and family to learn about the great women liberators not taught in school for Women History Month.

Black Couples Who Made World History

 

Sunday 5th March 2017

 

 

Throughout history, there are many Black men and women who have joined together in marriage and have contributed to World History. Often their contribution as a couple have been overlooked and not celebrated. There have been attempts to destroy the institution of marriage and to break families apart but Black families have been able to stay together and survive during difficult times in history.


In this presentation, Black History Studies will focus on royalty, liberators, activists, educators and musicians who have altered the course of history. Clearly there is a need to give a balance against the negative messages and images that surround Black relationships as CAN YOU NAME 10 BLACK MARRIED COUPLES WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO WORLD HISTORY?

Black History Studies in association with The Earth Center UK presents

 

The World's Oldest Science:
Decoding Traditional African Astronomy

 


Saturday 23rd July 2016

 

Naba Iritah Shenmira



"_While humanity was waiting for new developments in the science of geometry, mathematics, astronomy... humanity has not seen anything that is fundamentally new since the discoveries of the priest of the temples of the Pharaohs._" - NEB NABA LAMOUSSA MORODENIBIG, THE PHILOSOPHY PODIUM


Kemetic culture has always been the world authority on spirituality, philosophy, astronomy, healing, mathematics, geomancy and so on. This remains true to this day, although religious/governmental institutions have obscured the origin and existence of the Kemetic culture through campaigns of warfare, propaganda and misinformation. Never ones to lay down their culture or their values, the Kemetic spiritual system has survived intact, maintaining its authenticity to the modern day. It has been preserved by the elders of the traditional priesthood from the initiation system of the Niger Valley. These priests and priestesses, after their ancestors were ordered by the Pharaoh to relocate from the Nile Valley to escape invasions, have been preserving this knowledge in secret.

 

On this night, Naba Iritah Shenmirah himself a Kemetic priest and son of the late Naba Lamoussa Morodenibig High Priest and founder of the Earth Centre, will speak on this ancient tradition.

 

Who are the Earth Center?

 

The Earth Center is the unified form of the Temples and Nomes of the Nile and Niger River Valley region, also known as Kemet. It is a spiritual organisation and is not religious, it is not-for-profit and non-governmental. Its purpose is to promote the well-being of all people by educating humanity about the Kemetic culture, which is the original model for all other cultures around the world. The Earth Center opened its doors in the U.S.A. in 1998 when Dogon High Priest, Master Naba Lamoussa Morodenibig, began initiating students in Chicago, Illinois.

 

After Master Nabas transition his son Naba Iritah Shenmira took over his work and has continued to move the Earth Centers mission forward.

 

This event will take place on SATURDAY 23RD JULY 2016 from 3.00pm.

 

The event will be held Upstairs at the Ritzy, Ritzy Picturehouse, Brixton Oval, Coldharbour Lane, London, SW2 1JG.
