Following the success of the first Black History Month closing event at Lewes Town Hall in 2021, the Mayor of Lewes is hosting an event called Time for Change: Action Not Words on October 30 2022 at 5pm in the Assembly Room in Lewes Town Hall (Fisher Street entrance).
You are invited to join us for a free evening of reflection, discussion, and celebration as we approach the end of Black History Month, supporting the theme for Black History Month Time for Change: Action not Words.
We will be welcoming special guest poet and activist Rick Dove from South-West London. In addition, there will be a panel discussion hosted by Patrick Nyikavaranda, a director at Diversity Resource International. The panel includes Brighton-based poet/spoken word artists Priss Nash and Annie Whilby, Lewes-based Vandu Languages’ Deputy Director Aaron Clarke and retired professional footballer Victor Anichebe.
Food will be available at the interval and event will culminate with a musical drumming performance.
The event is free, but you must register via Eventbrite to attend. Book your space before tickets sell out!
