THE BLACK Cultural Archives will be hosting a series of speakers to provide a forum for different communities from the black Atlantic to talk and discuss the historical context of blackness.
The series will include fashion, art, social and political activism, and culture. Our speakers represent a large portion of the black diaspora – USA, UK, Trinidad, Jamaica, Brazil and Ghana.
We will also be offering several cultural events from fashion and art workshops, digital poetry, digital dance night, and an open interactive panel discussion for younger audiences, but all are welcome. Please find our list of events in the “Events” tab.

The Organization of Women of Asian and African Descent, established in 1978 in London, had a defining impact on the development of black activism within the UK.
Their moves to define blackness and organise for changes in education, immigration and healthcare, have largely been left out of collective memory.
Join the Black Cultural Archives for a conversation with Stella Dadzie to discuss how blackness and gender have been defined in Britain and the legacy of OWAAD.
