Ed Miliband is to visit Croydon this week to give a talk as part of the borough's black history month celebrations.
The Labour Party leader has been confirmed as guest speaker for Croydon BME Forum's annual lecture, to take place on Thursday (October 23) at Bernard Weatherill House.
Nero Ughwujabo, chief executive of Croydon BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) Forum, said he was "delighted to have such an A-list speaker" for this year's event.
"We're quite keen to hear his views on Black History Month, BME leadership and race equality," he added.
The free talk has been organised by the BME Forum in conjunction with Operation Black Vote, an organisation which works to encourage BME communities to engage in politics.
It gets underway at 3.30pm, but tickets must be booked in advance. For more information call the BME Forum on 0208 684 3719 or book tickets online here.
