London

Sandra Dunn, of Nigeria, weaves a client's hair at the Looking Good Salon in Brixton, a section of London rich in African and Caribbean culture. Although travelers' guidebooks often ignore these cultural components in London, plaques and markers are popping up all over the city to commemorate the contributions of people of color, such as Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley and poet Phillis Wheatley. Brixton Tours offers a one-hour walking tour of the area that includes food tastings and stops at neighborhood cafes, bakeries, galleries, jazz pubs, parks, historic churches, libraries and market stalls.
