Black History Month Event. This 2 hour guided walking tour celebrates the diverse contribution of black people to the history of Norwich and Norfolk. From street traders in the 18th and 19th centuries and Pablo Fanque, the UK's first black circus impresario, immortalised in John Lennon's song 'Being for the Benefit of Mr Kite', to the American servicemen who brought rhythm and blues and soul music to the city and Lucas the 1960s US airman, who settled in Norfolk, and gave soul to the Orford Cellar, there is much to celebrate. The tour also looks at slavery - those involved in the slave trade and the abolitionists from Norfolk like Thomas Fowell Buxton, Amelia Opie and Harriet Martineau. We also explore the work of 19th century Norfolk boxing hero Jem Mace with black boxers and the great contributions of soldier, historian, archaeologist and philanthropist, Frederick Duleep Singh and his sister Sophia Duleep Singh, who was a leading suffragette.
