Anti-colonial routes & Black Radicals: Somers Town

10 June 2022

18:00 -19:00

On Cranleigh Street George Padmore lived and led anti colonial struggles. He was part of a network that stretched across the world, but Somers Town was its hub. This walk takes in places associated with Padmore, Nkrumah, CLR James, Claudia Jones, Paul Robeson and others, from the Headquarters of the International African Service Bureau to the site of the Unity Theatre to an impressive block of social housing. The short walk considers the politics of building naming, as we explore the reasons behind the presence of Cecil Rhodes House, now renamed. Meet at the new Somers Town Museum where refreshments, a exhibition, library and publications can be found.
