Africa First
Equiano and British African Struggles for Freedom

The 25th African Remembrance Day (ARD) will be held at The Museum of Docklands, No 1 Warehouse, West India Quay, London E14 4AL. at 1.00pm sharp on Thursday, 1 August 2019.

The day will centre around the reflection and remembrance of the suffering and experiences of millions of African men, women and children who perished in the Middle Passage and plantations economies in the New World. This year the theme is ‘Africa First – Equiano and British African Struggles for Freedom’, which considers the impact of Olaudah Equiano’s extraordinary book ‘The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano: or Gustavus Vassa, the African’ published 230 years ago, as well as the activities of his associates in the ‘Sons of Africa’, now recognised as kick-starting organised African diaspora struggles in the UK. How have those struggles evolved from the time of Equiano and ‘Sons of Africa’ to the present.
