Students were enjoyed jewellery and mask making, head wrapping, hair braiding, food tasting and a Mancala (board games) tournament.
CNWL, which also has a campus in Wembley, will be hosting a string of other activities to celebrated BHM including showings of the movies ’12 Years a Slave’ and ‘The Butler’ at both campuses and an Ancestors Workshop with Paul Crooks, an afro Caribbean author and genealogist.
