A Black History Month market is coming to St Albans on Friday.
Carmen Richards – of Carmen’s Caribbean Kitchen – is running the event for the Black Lives Matter movement, and it will take place alongside the BID market in the city centre.
Carmen, who has been a resident of St Albans her entire life, said that she’s seen many changes in the community – and wants to celebrate the city’s diversity.
She added: “This is such a great way to get people aware of the great businesses we have to offer in the black community.
“I have wanted to do an Afro/Caribbean market for many years, but it always fell on deaf ears,” she continued, hoping that there will be more interest this year.
