Bridget Fox, shadow MP for Islington South and Finsbury, attended the launch of Black History Month: Hidden Histories at St Mary Magdalene Academy on Saturday. This free community festival has been organised by Islington Council and Cambridge Education @ Islington with sponsorship from local groups and businesses.
Saturday’s launch event saw a huge crowd of people queuing for a free, delicious Caribbean lunch. After lunch, guest-speakers spoke about their Islington beginnings, with market stalls, music and dance performances and a play-zone keeping kids and adults busy.
Bridget Fox said: “The launch of Black History Month was a great event. I’m proud to live in such a diverse borough”.
