- DURATION 60 mins
Illustrated talk on some of the most famous, and least known, African Americans who strolled London's streets and fought for equality. Many African Americans came to Britain in the mid-1800s to escape US white supremacy. Once here they gave speeches, networked, raised funds, collaborated, shared strategies with and inspired the local black community who had similar struggles.

What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)
