    Get Up Stand Up - Raising The New African Consciousness

    Members Lounge, Harrow Civic Centre

    BTWSC/African Histories Revisited, Akoben Awards, TAOBQ (The African Or Black Question) in association with Harrow Mencap and Harrow Council, present:

    The Harrow African History 2019 Season Get Up Stand Up - Raising The New African Consciousness programme.

    The lack of history, self-knowledge and confidence play a large part in the issue of people, particularly youths, being disengaged with their African identity. Our African History Season programme uses audio-visuals and musical performances, motivational speech, film, play, and a pan-Africanism presentation to deal with the issues in an engaging manner by Brother Andrew 'The Investigator' Muhammad, Kimba, Kwaku and Nana Asante for a youth and inter-generational audience.

    All events @, except *4, which is at: Harrow Mencap, 1st Floor, 3 Jardine House, Harrovian Business Village, Bessborough Rd, Harrow HA1 3EX.
