Black History Event at the Yellow Pavilion
100 people came to an evening of performances in aid of Black History Month at the Yellow Pavilion this November. The theme of the evening was “Agents of freedom” and all of the performances focused on signature individuals in black history who were instrumental in the fight for freedom and civil rights.
The evening began with African drumming and poetry, before the audience was invited to listen to a historical talk but author Paul Crookes, who looked at the role Toussaint Louverture played in the Haitian revolution. Guests were then invited to tuck into some tasty food whilst viewing a locally-curated art exhibition.
The evening finale was a production of the Malcolm X story performed by young people from Origin TV.
