BCA Books presents An evening with Sir Lenny Henry

BCA are proud to welcome Comedian and Humanitarian, Sir Lenny Henry, to the Archives. Ahead of his tour for his new autobiography, Who Am I Again, our guests will have the chance to hear from the man himself and purchase copies of the book.

Lenny Henry is one of Britain’s best-known and celebrated comedians, with a career which began with cult stardom on children’s television to including writer, radio DJ, TV presenter, co-founder of Comic Relief and award-winning actor.

Lenny will take the audience through a jam session of funny and sad memories and stories - from growing up in the Black Country, puberty, school, friendship, family secrets and unashamed racism. With his mother’s mantra of ‘H’integration’ echoing in his ears, Lenny will recount setting out on his rollercoaster ride of a career - but at every stage wondering: Am I good enough? Is this what they want?

This event is brought you by the Black Cultural Archives’ Development Board and SixbyNines & Co.
