Annamarie Ewing of BlackClassics in the UK forwards the above performance link, which is still available for listening, and writes about Britain's Black History Month in October:

Dear Friends

This year's Black History Month has educated and entertained us with so much good music that I dare to believe that we may at last have completed our long uphill journey (struggle!) from 'raising awareness' of classical musicians of African-Caribbean heritage past and present, to establishing our ongoing presence on the world stage (on and offline!) and preparing the way for the future. We've come such a long way since BlackClassics here in the UK in 2008 and [in 2000] in the US!  So proud!
