There were so many fantastic events across Tooting to celebrate Black History Month, which is celebrated in October.
It was great to see Wandsworth Council celebrate the contributions of black business owners, and other influential members of the blakc community make to our borough.
Many of our local libraries were host to brilliant events where black authors could share their stories with the community. A series of videos published online celebrated the brilliant contributions to local creative industries.
I know that many residents particularly enjoyed the pop up street food event celebrating some of the best cuisine from across Africa and the Caribbean.
My personal highlight was attending the Roots and Culture event in Tooting, where dancers, musicians, poetry, comedy, and fantastic street food stalls showed some of the best of African and Caribbean culture.
It was great to see how well attended all these events were, and great to see our community coming together to celebrate the cultures of the black communities here in Tooting.
Thank you to everyone who attended and helped to organise these events!
