    This event will showcase a short scene from the movie Roots by Alex Haley, about the life of Kunta Kinteh, a slave whose origin was traced back to the village of Juffereh, near James Island in The Gambia, West Africa. The island was used as a slave collection point.

    The English named the island James Island after James, the Duke of York, and then later King James II of England, but recently it was renamed Kunta Kinta Island. The island is now recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    This event will be celebrating Black History Month and the heroism of Kunta Kinteh who endured pain to keep his African name in defiance of slavery.

    There will be an opportunity to meet and talk to people from different backgrounds and learn about Gambian culture and food.
