Uncover the inspiring legacy of Charles Ignatius Sancho, an influential Black Londoner of the Georgian era, on this in-depth self-guided audio tour. Narrated by Paterson Joseph, an actor and writer, this tour is suited for history enthusiasts and culture buffs ready to step back into the 18th century. The journey chronicles Sancho's extraordinary life, from his challenging beginnings to his accomplishments as a writer, musician, and abolitionist. Begin the tour at the historic Westminster Abbey and conclude your adventure at the British Museum, with its vast repository of human history and culture. Along the route, experience the transformation of London through Sancho's eyes, visiting sites pertinent to his life and the period in which he lived. From crossing the newly constructed Westminster Bridge of the 1750s to strolling past Downing Street, each stop on the tour is a window into the past. Highlights include imagining the energy of Georgian-era gatherings at the Theatre Royal and reflecting on love at the doorstep where Sancho met his beloved Anne Osborne. This immersive audio walk offers a unique chance to inhabit Sancho's world, engage with his critiques of society, and celebrate his contributions to London's rich tapestry.
