Black History Month
The Association has contributed to many local initiatives, including a campaign to mark the bicentenary of the 1807 Abolition of the North Atlantic Slave trade with the commemorative plaques now in place at Enfield Civic Centre, Edmonton Library and Community House, Enfield.
Every year the ECA puts on a production to inform, enlighten and encourage people of colour of all ages about the rich cultural heritage. The 2016 event was entitled Black Firsts: A celebration of those who were the first in their field in the UK. Among the speakers were Sir Godfrey Palmer OBE, the first black professor in Scotland, Mrs. Helen Grant, the first black woman to be elected as a Conservative MP, and Leroy Logan MBE, founder member of the National Black Police Association.
