1919 Race Riots Animated Walking Tours
In our Black History Month festival in 2019, we worked with Tmesis Theatre, First Take & Pagoda Arts on films and live performance which marks the centenary of the 1919 Race Riots in Liverpool. In June 1919 Race Riots exploded on Liverpool’s streets resulting in the murder of young black Seafarer, Charles Wotten. Along the Walking Tours, Tmesis Theatre created moving performances bringing this crucial piece of history back to life. We worked with film makers First Take to create 5 short films that you can watch about the route of Charles Wotten’s tragic journey.
