Journey to Justice Walk

Type:Walking Festival

Outside Premier Inn, Snig Hill/ Bank Street, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S1 8LY
Journey to Justice Walk


Sheffield’s Angelic Troublemakers and the ‘Demon Prince’s from Foren’...

A linear walk from west to east of the city centre, discussing Sheffield’s past actions on matters of race, class and protest. Mark will focus on the various anti-slavery societies of the 18th and 19th centuries, fugitive slaves, working-class solidarity and some of the cultural actions on race. 

He’ll also talk about those who came to the city, such as the ‘coloured’ Victorian circus master, and visitors including Olaudah Equiano, Paul Robeson, Olive Morris and Malcolm X. What is the legacy of these people and their protests that might shine a light on how we now live together and engage in the world around us today?
