About Talks

I currently give talks across London on nineteenth-century women travel writers’ views on slavery; in addition on prominent black female travellers and writers of the same period like Mary Prince and Nancy Prince who went to Britain and Russia respectively.

I am developing talks on the following questions:

How glaucoma affects the African Caribbean community?

How mindfulness can aid recovery from loss and bereavement?

Please email me for hourly rates.

The talks below were completed in 2016. Please feel free to download slides for any of these talks.
