An evening of song, dance and celebration from the award-winning Black Heroes Soul Food Café.

Join Black Heroes Soul Food Café on 17 June to enjoy 'The Story of John Archer' exhibition, plus performances, a Q&A and open-mic session at Battersea Arts Centre.

Throughout 2023, Black Heroes Foundation are hosting a series of events at Wandsworth libraries focused on telling the story of London’s first Black Mayor, John Archer, who became Mayor of Battersea in 1913.

Wandsworth libraries will host workshops for local schools, where children will try writing and presenting an inaugural speech for a mayor, creating drawings and paintings, and writing newspaper articles in response to John Archer’s life.

The children’s work will form part of the exhibition at Battersea Arts Centre, and later it will be displayed across local libraries as part of Wandsworth’s Black History Month celebrations in October 2023.
