“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…

The first story from Revolution Mix – an Eclipse movement spearheading the largest ever national delivery of new Black British stories. Black Men Walking returns for a second UK tour following its huge sell out success last year.
Dedicated to the Black Men’s Walking Group.
