Akoben Awards highlights African British business history

Come discover some of the Africans involved in British business, stretching back over 200 years

Akoben Awards presents a free, family-friendly Black History month (BHM), the last of Harrow’s BHM 2011 event – all welcome at the Council Chamber in Harrow Civic Centre on Thursday Nov. 10 2011, 6.30-8.45pm for They Are There: Highlighting Africans Within British Business & Corporate World.

Akoben Awards co-ordinator Kwaku, special guests and panellists including National Black Women’s Network founder Sonia Brown MBE, will lead an inter-active, audio-visual presentation which breaks the myth that Africans are not business owners or within the high echelons of the corporate world, by highlighting business owners, from Ignatius Sancho, a shopkeeper in Westminster over 200 years ago, to contemporary business people and executives who have made significant achievements in the private, public and statutory sectors. There will also be an edutainment performance that speaks to the topic by Music4Causes rapper Kimba, plus performances by some Harrow young artists, followed by discussion and “golden hand” contributions from the audience.

Harrow Civic Centre is at the Harrow & Wealdstone station end of Station Road, Harrow HA1 2XF. Buses that stop in front of the venue are 140, 182, 258, and 340.
