The Voices of Black Folk: In Unexpected Places poster


‘The Voices of Black Folk: In Unexpected Places’. The latest instalment in our ‘Voices of Black Folk’ series dedicated to shining a light on the forgotten rich history of black voices across the UK and Europe. 

Written and directed by Khareem Jamal, (playwright of Black Heroes In the Hall Of Fame and The Abolitionist), The Voices of Black Folk: In Unexpected Places shares with us the fascinating lives of Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin considered the ‘father’ of Russian literature; the Roman Emperor Septimius Severus; Britain’s first Black Queen Philippa of Hainault; and composer, violinist, swordsman and army General Joseph Bolgone all who pop up in history in places we wouldn’t expect such as the birth of modern Russia, the Roman empire, the British Royal family and the French Revolution.

Witness black history as it comes to life on stage!
