This online virtual walk looks at the history of some of the women of Haringey, in particular the black women who lived, worked or visited the borough. Avril Nanton is a fully qualified tour guide who regularly does walks and tours around Haringey, looking at black life. In this tour she looks at some of the women who have contributed to the area. Women such as  Carleen de Sozer and Cynthia Jarrett both of whom have a connection to the Tottenham area. 

Marking the end of Women’s History Month in Haringey, join Avril Nanton on this walk taking in the historic heart of Tottenham from the High Road to Bruce Castle.

From Priscilla Wakefield (1751-1832) and nurse Sister Freda in the 1880s, to more recent histories of the seven sisters who planted trees and Tottenham’s first black comedy club run by a woman - come along and hear their fascinating stories, and those of many other African/Caribbean women of Tottenham.
