Black Men Walking

“We walk. Though we are written into the landscape you don’t see us. We walked England before the English.”

Thomas, Matthew and Richard walk.

They walk the first Saturday of every month. Walking and talking. But this walk…

Maybe they should have cancelled, but they needed the walk today. Out in the Peaks, they find themselves forced to walk backwards through two thousand years before they can move forwards.

“We were here before that! We can go back to I dunno, 1600s – John Moore, the black business in York. He may even have paid for some of those milestones to be quarried, y’know?” 

Black Men Walking, directed by Dawn Walton and written by Testament, returns for a second UK tour following its huge sell-out success last year.

The first story from Revolution Mix – an Eclipse movement spearheading the largest ever national delivery of new Black British stories. Dedicated to the Black Men’s Walking Group. Originally co-produced with Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester.

“A truly original piece of theatre, innovative in both form and content. Exhilarating use of prose, poetry and rap to explore both the resonances of history and the racism of the present."
