Black British Heritage Walks 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:
• 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
