Community Capsule Continues…

on February 23, 2015

I’m the founder of Nottingham Black Archive an organisation set up to research document and archive black history, heritage and culture in Nottingham. It was set up in 2010 and has made some fantastic progress since then. Our most recent project was the Community Capsule Project which documented the experiences of Caribbean WWII veterans and their families.

At the moment we are planning another event scheduled for May 16th 2015 to take place at NAE between 2-5pm. This will be a mix of poetry, archive film footage on the World Wars from both the Imperial war museum and NBA footage and speakers. It is a project that is currently being planned with the former Sheriff of Nottingham Merlitta Bryan. It is also part of a bigger project that has the support of Veronica Pickering, Deputy Lieutenant for Nottinghamshire.
