Excellent progress has been made in Yorkshire on exploring the Counties Black and African heritage, especially in Leeds.
This is thanks to the Diasporian Stories Research Group (DSRG) set up in 1994,. Members include Audrey Dewjee, Allison Edwards, Dr. Carl Hylton, and Chris Power.
There are specialist walks and talks including about Pablo Fanque the circus owner, the Fisk Jubilee Singers and the life of one of its members Thomas Rutling.
