It’s Black History month but you wouldn’t know it in Tottenham where Revive PLC plan to turn Kwesi’s All Black African Party hotbed into luxury flats, and it looks like Kiyi’s ‘conscious’ bookstore will soon go the same way. And then a beautiful visitor shows up in their midst and life goes from bad to worse.”Being around too much white folk. I seen the bluest of blackest men get too much exposure bam, they lose their rhythm. Put on a James Brown tune and they start doing the Charleston to ras!”
