Black Heritage Walks Network

Sunday, 2 June, 2019 - 12:00

Black Heritage Walks Network is a group that highlights the historical and modern-day achievements of the African-Caribbean community in and around Britain. The network has researched and created a series of black heritage trails across the West Midlands.

We aim:

• To document migration stories and achievements of the black community in the UK, in particular, the post-war African Caribbean community.

• To inform and educate local communities about the contribution of the black community within the UK

• To encourage tourism within the highlighted places of interest


Our current  programme of walks include the following;


Madiba Handsworth Black Heritage walk,

Ida B Wells Edgbaston Black Heritage walk,

6888th Edgbaston Black Heritage walk,
