About The Africa Centre

Established 60 years ago, The Africa Centre has been a beacon for education, connection, and advocacy for Africa and its Diaspora. Initially formed during the era of colonial rule, it played a pivotal role in fostering connection, debate, and strategic planning for independence movements across the continent. Over time, its mission evolved to address pertinent issues facing people of African descent globally, serving as a nexus for South African anti-apartheid efforts and local Black British civic and human rights movements.

The Centre has been instrumental in nurturing cultural and social organisations, many of which thrive today, and has provided a platform for emerging artists who have achieved international acclaim in music, theatre, and the visual arts.  Central to its ethos is the Young Africa Centre, a dynamic collective of volunteers aged 18 to 35, driving youth-oriented programming notably, the Chakula programme, funded by the National Lottery’s Propel Grants, focuses on engaging African LGBTQI+ communities, ensuring the relevance of The Africa Centre’s activities for the next generation.
