Exhibition

Family Ties: The Adamah Papers 

FROM 7 MARCH until October 2018

A British-Ghanaian family’s journey to rediscover their kingship and rich heritage.  This exhibition is quite possibly the first time the Ewe culture has been presented in this way, outside of traditional cultural realms.


EXHIBITION

Expectations: The Neil Kenlock Archive

7 AUGUST UNTIL 24 October 2018

Come and experience the first ever photography exhibition ‘takeover’ at the Black Cultural Archives using photographs taken by Neil Kenlock. Known for his captivating work focusing on key moments in post Windrush Britain, Kenlock’s powerful Expectations exhibition is no exception. 


STATEMENT

In Solidarity with the Windrush Generation 

As the nation’s only repository dedicated to preserving the heritage of African and Caribbean people, views the fiasco unfolding regarding the “Windrush generation” as a shameful lack of appreciation of the courageous citizens who have helped to create what we know as Britain today.
