Exciting Black History Month events coming up in Brent and Harrow

Guest Blog from Kwaku

This is to remind you that Harrow Mayor Cllr Nana Asante will be hosting an extra African History Season event at her Parlour this Friday Oct 25, 5-7pm: From Martin Luther King To Paul Stephenson in 1963. From Race Riots In Chicago To Cardiff in 1919. How Far Have We Come? with Chicago jazz musician Ernest Dawkins talking about the US history behind his band's latest compositions, and Kwaku giving the UK experience during the corresponding period. So if you are aware of, or interested in hearing more about the impact of Martin Luther King's 'I Have A Dream' speech, don't miss this event!
Motivational speaker Andrew Muhammad aka The Investigator will be doing his thing on Tuesday Oct 29, 6.30-8.30pm at Word Power: Together We Can! in the Harrow Council Chamber, which includes a creative workshop for young people:
Tuesday's event will be in memory of the recently departed Jessica Huntley, an inspirational octogenarian, community activist, wife and business partner of Eric Huntley, both of whom have been special guests at our previous events.
On Saturday Oct 26, 7.30pm, the Mayor will be in the London Borough of Brent of Brent for the The Group @ St John's Black History Dinner, where after a lovely meal (I can vouch for that, as I was there in the summer & enjoyed the meal!), I'll be talking about education and overcoming obstacles. If you don't want to hear me, come for the food anyway, and support a worthy community project - it is an austerity-friendly £5 adults (£3 children)!
