The event will invite Sheffielders to learn more about the project, allow for the sharing of stories and encourage more people to consider joining SADACCA.

There will be a branded ‘Bantu Box’ with patterns and logos on it, posters, SADACCA t-shirts and a map of Sheffield where people can pin notable locations for a black history ‘walking tour’.
