On Saturday 20th September 2014, Black History Studies held our fifth Black Market and Film Festival event at Platanos College, Stockwell.
The Black Market is an event to showcase, expose and connect Black cultural and creative entrepreneurs to the community and to provide a platform to sell their products, promote their skills and engage with the local and surrounding community.
The aim of the event is to:
• Showcase and connect Black cultural and creative entrepreneurs to the community
• Increase the exposure of Black cultural and creative sector’s participation in the wider community
• To provide a platform to sell their products, promote their skills and engage with the local and surrounding community.
• To raise the awareness of the importance and relevance of increasing your personal financial literacy and the benefits of developing and adopting an enterprising lifestyle.
The event was successful with over 250 people attending on the day to support the 42 Black Businesses who showcased their products and services at the event. At the event we premiered the film ‘Elementary Genocide: From Primary to Penitentiary’ by
