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. For the first time visitors can enjoy the communal areas of the building, while exploring ideas of the black British leadership experience in the 1960s and 1970s.
