Description

Bringing together films spanning 1901 to 1985 and taken from many different regions of the UK, this screening offers incredibly rare, little-seen and valuable depictions of Black British life on screen.

Witness important archive footage of carefree and activitst Black British communities all over the UK. 

From scenes of a Nigerian wedding in Cornwall, to early Notting Hill Carnival, to protests throughout the years, this footage highlights the many ways in which Black people in Britain took up space across this land.

This collection of footage will be on loop so come through the SU and catch this film!
