Black History Month in London Be Like (A Retrospective)…♥️💛💚

Culture. Clairvoyance. Relevance. Learning. Appreciating. Richness. Universality. Real Black Girl Magic. Unity. Love...Lots of Love.

I've seen the presence and/or influence of black (melanin dominant) people every place I've traveled. The African diaspora's influence is far and wide, and African culture is so very rich! So to spend Black History Month abroad and learn about the contributions of Africans in another part of the world through a different cultural lense than that of Black America was very special for me. I was all up and through these London streets celebrating Black History Month! And yes, October is Black History Month in the UK.

Note: Learn about Windrush. ✨✨


Because I explored so much, I'll list the events and link them as I share content. I had a very culturally enriching experience and hope something from my list lends to greater appreciation of black history all over the world.
