BLACK 2 HASTINGS Community Road Trip

Warrior Square to Africa Fashion

All Aboard The BLACK 2 HASTINGS Freedom Bus.

First Stop: Africa Fashion at the V&A (Victoria & Albert Museum), London

Freedom Buses began in the 1960s as a peaceful protest to highlight the inequalities that Black and People of Colour faced in America and England.

Today Afri-Co-Lab invites Black and People of Colour folks in St Leonards, Rother & Hastings to take a ride on the BLACK 2 HASTINGS Freedom Bus.


Join us on a community road trip to the V&A, enjoy the freedom and confidence of feeling comfy and welcomed in your national institution!



Visiting big-named institutions like the Victoria & Albert Museum can sometimes seem daunting!

  • Not local

  • Not cheap

  • And no guarantee of having a good time 


These are all valid concerns!

Join us on the BLACK 2 HASTINGS Freedom Bus and let Afri-Co-Lab help you navigate these challenges, giving you the freedom and confidence to have an awesome, fun-filled, creative, day-out with friends!
