Pre-recorded singing, dancing and spoken word performances will feature alongside a speech from Barking MP Margaret Hodge.
Barking and Dagenham BLM has been particularly active since organising the hugely successful Barking BLM protest back in June, when hundreds took to the streets in response to the death of George Floyd.
Organisers that day included local students Nana Oduro, Yatta Feika, Annine Ngesang, Nina Ali, Jasmine Osemwegie and Jada Hutchinson, all of whom remain heavily involved with the group.
