Leeds Black History Walk: New Responses

Dates and times

10 Oct 2020

Show Map

Parkinson Building Steps

Leeds University, Woodhouse Lane, Leeds, LS2 9JT

The creation of Joe Williams, the Leeds Black History Walk exposes unseen narratives and recent history in order to provoke both questions and positivity, and to inspire the people of Yorkshire. The walk provides new perspectives on historical fact and educates people positively about their past. It engages audience members with Black history and its particular relevance to Leeds. 

For one day only, Joe will be joined by four performance artists who will provide their perspectives on the walk: Jamal Gerald, Rheima Robinson, Asher Jael and Leah Francis. The guest artists will each give a creative response to a section of the walk that inspires them.

If you've been on a walk before, no two Leeds Black History Walks are ever the same! There will be some familiar aspects but you will gain a new experience as you witness information and ideas reflected through someone else's viewpoint and creativity.

For more information, and to meet the artists, visit the Geraldine Connor Foundation website! 

Leeds Black History Walks are run by Heritage Corner who are fully responsible for the event.
