Black Cultural Archives | FREE

The exhibition draws on research done by Professor Lucy Bland on the children born in world war II to black GIs and British women. Lucy interviewed over 50 people.

The exhibition, in the form of 7 pop-up banners, will display some of the  black and white photographs that have been given to Lucy by her interviewees of them as babies, children, some with the mothers, some of their fathers when young men in the UK, a few of them meeting their fathers or US relatives later in life.

There will also be access to oral extracts from some of the interviews that the ‘children’ have given which are housed at the Black Cultural Archives (BCA).

The exhibition will be accompanied by two Saturday panel discussions at the BCA:
