The line-up

 

Tony Warner

Tony Warner established Black History Walks — 15 guided walks, bus tours, and other strands that explore the thousands of years of Afro-Caribbean history in London — in 2007. It has since been featured on BBC, ITV, Arise TV, The Guardian, Huffington Post, Conde Nast, Time Out and Channel 4.

Tony is also the co-founder and chair of the African Odysseys programme, which screens African diaspora films and Q&As on a monthly basis at the British Film Institute’s Southbank Centre. It is the only such programme in the country and has shown thousands of films to tens of thousands of people. Tony has been exhibiting films about Black history in museums, art galleries, restaurants and youth clubs since 2000. He pioneered community partnerships with and lectured at the Imperial War Museum, National Portrait Gallery and Museum of London/Docklands, all of which led to huge increases in Black audiences.
